  1. All patients arrived at the emergency department within 6 h after onset of symptoms and received a CT-angiography of the intracranial circle of Willis in the acute phase. NIHSS on admission significantly differed between both groups
  2. BMI body mass index, NIHSS National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale. NIHSS on admission significantly differed between both groups
