Endovascular Reperfusion of Acute Large Vessel Occlusion Stroke

Producción científica: Chapter


Acute stroke treatment continues to evolve with optimization of systemic intravenous thrombolysis and endovascular mechanical thrombectomy (MT) for intracranial large vessel occlusion (LVO). Neurointerventional techniques to achieve reperfusion in acute LVO stroke initially involved local intra-arterial infusion of thrombolytic agents. The subsequent development of MT devices has resulted in more complete and faster arterial recanalization while maintaining patient safety. Today, MT is standard of care for LVO stroke up to 24 h from last known well. In this chapter, we discuss various endovascular recanalization techniques for LVO stroke with illustrative cases.
