Endovascular treatment for acute ischemic stroke


Kulcsar, Zsolt; Carrera, Emmanuel; Michel, Patrik (2017). Endovascular treatment for acute ischemic stroke. Revue Médicale Suisse, 13(560):886-889.

Abstract

The benefit of endovascular treatment (ET) after acute ischemic stroke has long been debated. Recent studies have demonstrated the clinical benefit of ET up to approximately 8 hours after stroke onset, mainly in association with intranenous thrombolysis. The positive effect is higher if ET is initiated early and performed by an experienced team. Current ET techniques include thrombectomy with clot removal using stentretriever technques or local thromboaspiration of the clot. ET seems to be so efficient that stroke care networks have to be organised to offer ET as quickly as possible in all patients who could benefit from this therapy.
