Devenir du mismatch perfusion/diffusion chez les patients non recanalisés après thrombolyse

Abstract : Our objective was to determine the rate of salvaged mismatch PWI/DWI in non recanalizers patients and to identify factors influencing the fate of this critically hypoperfused tissue. Methods: We included 57 patients with anterior circulation acute ischemic stroke without vessel recanalization despite intravenous thrombolysis. Using voxel-­-based analysis of coregistrated MR images before and 24 hours after treatment, salvaged mismatch was defined as the initial PWI/DWI mismatch that did not overlap with final infarct. Mean Tmax values were compared between salvaged and infarcted mismatch areas. We also searched an association between cardiovascular risk factors, pre-­-thrombolysis clinical factors and percentage of salvaged mismatch. Results: Using Tmax>6 seconds, 60.4% [40.0-­-83.8] of the PWI/DWI mismatch escaped from infarction. Salvaged mismatch was still sizeable for Tmax>8 s (50.5% [30.1-­-80.0]) and for Tmax>10s (41.1% [22.2-­-70.3]). Salvaged mismatch was initially less severely hypoperfused than the infarcted mismatch (Tmax: 8.3sec [7.8-­-9.1] vs 10.2 [8.9-­-11.4], P<0.001). Diabetics had a lower percentage of salvaged mismatch than non-­-diabetics (41.7 vs 62.9%, P=0.046). Conclusion: Large fraction of PWI/DWI mismatch do not proceed to infarction even for stringent Tmax thresholds in thrombolysed non recanalizers.
