WSC 2022 | Sex differences in EVT utilization and outcomes

Menglu Ouyang, PhD, MPH, BN, The George Institute for Global Health, University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia, presents the findings of a study looking at sex differences in endovascular treatment (EVT) utilization and outcomes after acute ischemic stroke. A total of 52 studies were included in the meta-analysis, which concluded that there was no significant difference in the rate of EVT between men and women. From the selected studies, 10 included estimates of sex differences of EVT on functional outcomes. No sex disparities were found in the functional outcome. Further studies should investigate the association between sex and health-related quality of life. This interview took place at the World Stroke Congress 2022 in Singapore.
