BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Arterial recanalization and subsequent reperfusion have extensively demonstrated their ability to restore the brain function when performed shortly after acute ischemic stroke. However, arterial recanalization does not necessarily lead to brain tissue reperfusion. SUMMARY OF REPORT This review provides an update of current approaches to improve the efficacy profile of brain tissue reperfusion within and beyond the therapeutic window, including the use of novel… CONTINUE READING
