Response to Letter by Graham et al
We thank Dr Graham and colleagues for showing interest in our article. The purpose of the annual Advances in Stroke section is to review topics where important progress has been made, based on recently published articles. We fully agree on the importance of having a strong chain of care from prehospital facilities to the Emergency Department (ED), stroke unit, and postdischarge services. We fully agree that the ED plays a crucial role. We referred to consensus documents where ED management was highlighted but failed to find original research articles on this specific topic published during the last year. Hopefully, such studies will appear in the future, and they will surely be considered for inclusion in next years’ Advances section.
