Core Tip

Core Tip: In our study, we explored the effect of medical care linkage-continuous management mode in endovascular interventional therapy for posterior circulation cerebral infarction (PCCI). Our results showed that this mode effectively reduces the incidence of complications after vascular interventional therapy for PCCI, effectively improves patient compliance behavior and disease self-management ability, and is important for promoting recovery of neurological function and activities of daily living as well as for preventing recurrence of disease. Thus, it is worthy of being widely used in clinical applications.
