Table 1 Summary of results from the ten included patients

From: Are the current MRI criteria using the DWI-FLAIR mismatch concept for selection of patients with wake-up stroke to thrombolysis excluding too many patients?

Patient Age NIHSS on admission Size of largest DWI lesion DWI-FLAIR Therapy NIHSS at discharge mRS before stroke and at 3 months MRA/CTA
1 86 5 16 mm Match IVT 5 3 - 4 M1 stenosis
2 68 8 10 mm Match IVT 2 0 - 1 M1 branch occlusion Improved FU
3 53 5 12 mm Match IVT 0 0 - 0 Normal
4 33 9 58 mm Match IVT and EVT 0 0 - 1 M1 occlusion Normal FU
5 64 8 22 mm Match IVT 1 0 - 0 CTA normal
6 51 19 26 mm Mismatch IVT and EVT 11 0 - 2 ICA MCA occlusion Normal FU

8 90 3 7 mm Match IVT 1 3 - 3 P1 occlusion no FU
9 70 3 8 mm Mismatch IVT 0 0 - 2 Normal
10 65 4 16 mm Mismatch IVT 1 4 - 4 Stenosis M1, no FU
