Objective—To determine whether the presence, number, and distribution of cerebral microbleeds (CMBs) on pretreatment MRI scans are associated with an increased risk of intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) or poor functional outcome following endovascular thrombectomy (EVT) for acute ischemic stroke (AIS). Methods—We analyzed prospectively collected data of consecutive patients treated by EVT for AIS, in a comprehensive stroke center where MRI is the first-line pretreatment imaging. Neuroradiologists blinded to clinical data rated CMBs on T2* sequence using...
