BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Patients with stroke unsuitable for IV thrombolysis may be considered for endovascular revascularization, particularly when baseline imaging suggests proximal cerebral vessel occlusion associated with minimal established infarction. This retrospective review describes the use of a self-expanding retrievable intracranial stent (Solitaire AB) for thrombectomy in acute ischemic stroke. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-six consecutive patients with stroke treated endovascularly… CONTINUE READING
