Effect of direct oral anticoagulant for acute major cerebral artery occlusion in cardioembolic stroke/transient ischemic attack patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation

However, whether taking DOACs prior to stroke can prevent acute major cerebral artery occlusion (MCAO) has not been fully elucidated.
