On Wednesday 16 December 2020, C.J. Compagne will defend his PhD dissertation, entitled: ‘Imaging and Endovascular Treatment of Patients with Acute Ischemic Stroke’.
In the first part of this thesis, we focused on the underlying causes of ischemic stroke in patients with LVO. In the second part of this thesis, we focused on the outcome and safety of EVT in subgroups, namely patients with distally located thrombi, patients with an additional extracranial carotid artery dissection, and patients with intracranial atherosclerotic vessel disease. In the third part of this thesis, we evaluated whether follow-up infarct volume on non-contrast-CT (NCCT) can be used as an early surrogate imaging biomarker marker for clinical outcome via mediation analysis.
Due to corona, the PhD defences do not take place publicly in the usual way in the Senate Hall of the Professor Andries Querido Room. The candidates will defend their dissertation either in a small group or online.
