About The Study: In this analysis including 352 patients, both directly presenting and transferred patients with large ischemic stroke in the SELECT2 trial benefited from endovascular thrombectomy (EVT), including those with low Alberta Stroke Program Early CT Score at referring hospitals. However, the association of EVT with better functional outcomes was numerically better in patients presenting directly to EVT-capable centers. Prolonged transfer times and evolution of ischemic change were associated with worse EVT outcomes.
