  • Previous studies have suggested that patients with wake-up stroke (WUS) may have superior outcomes compared with patients with a witnessed late time of onset after revascularization. We sought to test this hypothesis in patients with anterior circulation large vessel occlusion stroke (ACLVOS) treated with endovascular therapy beyond 8 h from time last seen well (TLSW).
