    Thrombolysis In Myocardial Infarction (TIMI) flow pre and post the intervention as an indicator of revascularization rate

  • Thomboylsis in Cerebral Ischemia (TICI) flow [ Time Frame: Pre - will be no more than 1 hour prior to procedure and post will be no more then 1 hour after completion of procedure ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Thomboylsis in Cerebral Ischemia (TICI) flow pre and post intervention as an indicator of revascularization rate

  • symptomatic intracranial Hemorrhage (ICH) [ Time Frame: 72 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Incidence of symptomatic symptomatic intracranial Hemorrhage (ICH) within 72 hours of intervention defined by ECASSIII as 4 points worsening in NIHSS

  • National Institute of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS) [ Time Frame: 30 Days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    at 30 Day visit National Institute of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS) will be assessed
