Introduction: Anaesthetic type plays an important role for patients undergoing endovascular therapy for acute ischemic stroke (AIS). General anaesthesia (GA) offers airway security and immobility but is time-consuming, associated with significant hemodynamic changes, and restricts intraoperative neuromonitoring. Sedation avoids endotracheal intubation… (More)
