To the Editor In their randomized clinical trial, Dr Suzuki and colleagues1 reported that mechanical thrombectomy alone failed to demonstrate noninferiority compared with combined intravenous thrombolysis and mechanical thrombectomy with regard to favorable functional outcome at 90 days in patients with acute ischemic stroke. We have some concerns about this study.
