Question: MER Eligibility

CTA Head reviewed and LM1 occlusion noted / acute ischemic left MCA stroke. Patient to be transferred and get CTP upon transfer. Patient transferred for higher level of care. Case discussed with interventional radiologist and agreed with transfer.

Is this documentation adequate to answer "Yes" documentation that the patient is eligible for MER therapy or a mechanical thrombectomy procedure?

Answer:

Joy, CTP is not sufficient. Select "No" for MER Eligibility in the absence of other documentation that mentions mechanical thrombectomy / endovascular therapy. Thank you for your inquiry.
