Outcomes associated with renal impairment following emergent endovascular treatment

Takeaway

  • Reduced estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) at admission is associated with a lower rate of 3-month functional independence and a higher risk of recurrent stroke in people with emergent large vessel occlusion (ELVO) treated with emergent endovascular treatment (EVT).

Why this matters

    Functional outcomes associated with renal impairment (RI) markers are unknown in people with ELVO treated with EVT, and understanding these clinical outcomes could lead to improved treatment.
