The contribution of lipids, including low- and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C and HDL-C, respectively) and triglycerides (TG), to stroke outcomes is still debated. We sought to determine the impact of LDL-C concentrations on the outcome of patients with ischemic stroke in the anterior circulation who received treatment with endovascular thrombectomy (EVT). We performed a retrospective analysis of consecutive patients with acute ischemic stroke treated at a tertiary center between 2012 and 2016. Patients treated with EVT for large artery occlusion in the anterior circulation were selected. The primary endpoint was functional outcome at 3 months as measured with the modified Rankin Scale (mRS). Secondary outcome measures included hospital death and final infarct volume (FIV). Blood lipid levels were determined in a fasting state, 1 day after admission. We studied a total of 174 patients (44.8% men) with a median age of 74 years (interquartile range [IQR] 61-82) and median National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale at admission of 18 (14-22). Bridging therapy with intravenous tissue-plasminogen activator (t-PA) was administered in 122 (70.5%). The median LDL-C was 90 mg/dl (72-115). LDL-C demonstrated a U-type relationship with FIV (p = 0.036). Eighty-three (50.0%) patients had an mRS of 0-2 at 3 months. This favorable outcome was independently associated with younger age (OR 0.944, 95% CI 0.90-0.99, p = 0.012), thrombolysis in cerebral infarction 2b-3 reperfusion (OR 5.12, 95% CI 1.01-25.80, p = 0.015), smaller FIV (0.97 per cm
