Frontiers in endovascular thrombectomy for ischemic stroke

Stroke is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. There have been significant advances in the hyperacute treatment of patients with ischemic stroke with the advent and application of reperfusion therapies, including intravenous thrombolysis and endovascular thrombectomy. Endovascular thrombectomy involves the removal of thrombus from an artery using a mechanical retriever or aspiration with angiographic visualization. This review aims to outline the current evidence to support the use of endovascular thrombectomy and highlight areas of ongoing research.
