Abstract

Acute ischemic stroke is one of the leading causes of disability and death around the world, especially in developed countries. Since the introduction of the 2nd generation devices, endovascular treatment of acute ischemic stroke has rapidly developed and is now considered to be a standard treatment. Here, we summarize the results of recent randomized clinical trials that have compared endovascular thrombectomy with conventional treatment for acute stroke and review the indications, current devices, and endovascular thrombectomy methods used.
