Inter- ED transfer for patents with acute large vessel stroke: Efficiency vs thoroughness tradeoff

Published:December 03, 2020DOI:https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ajem.2020.11.056
      We thank the authors for their interest and agree that timely intervention for patients with large vessel occlusion (LVO) is associated with improved outcomes. Given the clear importance of timely treatment, the primary exposure we were interested in was the time spent at transferring EDs for patients who were transferred and ultimately received mechanical thrombectomy for LVO.
