management of AIS patients with distal vessel occlusion in comparison with the BMT alone. Methods Retrospective analysis was conducted on AIS patients treated by MT+BMT for primary distal vessel occlusion between 2015 and 2020, and were compared with a historic cohort managed by BMT alone between 2006 and 2015 selected based on the same inclusion criteria. A secondary analysis was conducted using propensity score matching (PSM) including the following: NIHSS, age and treatment with intravenous

Results Of 650 patients screened, 44 patients with primary distal vessel occlusions treated by MT+BMT were selected and compared with 36 patients who received BMT alone. After PSM, 28 patients in each group were matched without significant difference. Good clinical outcome defined as mRS £2 was achieved by 53.6% of the MT+BMT group and 57% of the BMT group (OR, 0.87; 95%CI, 0.3-2.4; P=1.00). The mortality rate was comparable in both groups (7% vs 10.7% in MT+BMT and BMT patients, respectively; OR=0.64; 95% CI, 0.
