National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale 24 hours after thrombectomy predicts functional outcome of patients with stroke and may serve as early outcome parameter in future studies
Early prediction of long-term functional outcome after acute ischaemic stroke is an appealing target as it may serve for early allocation of medical and financial resources and as early endpoint for future trials. Whereas in patients with ischaemic stroke after intravenous thrombolysis early surrogates such as neurological improvement of National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS) at 2 hours compared with admission NIHSS were described as reliable predictors of 3-month functional outcome,1 to date no consensus exists which parameters are suited as early surrogate of functional outcome after mechanical thrombectomy (MT).
