Abstract

Introduction: Endovascular therapy (EVT) for large vessel occlusion (LVO) stroke is time-sensitive. At Mount Sinai Health System, we developed a novel Mobile Interventional Stroke Team (MIST) that travels to Thrombectomy Capable Stroke Centers to perform EVT, as opposed to transferring patients in the Drip-and-Ship (DS) model. We have shown significantly faster initial door-to-recanalization times and improved discharge outcomes. The effect of the MIST stratified by time of presentation has yet to be studied. Hypothesis: In patients presenting with a last known well [LKW] of <6 hours, the MIST model leads to better clinical outcomes a..
