To the Editor We read with great interest the article by Seners and colleagues1 in which they investigated predictors of early neurological deterioration of presumed ischemic origin (ENDi) in large-vessel occlusion stroke with minor clinical deficits and developed a 4-point risk prediction score of ENDi. This is a common and probably underrecognized problem in large-vessel occlusion stroke, and characterizing patients at risk of ENDi is highly relevant for patient management.
