Abstract:
Stroke is the third leading cause of death and the leading cause of disability in the developed world.1 The treatment approach for acute ischaemic stroke is straightforward: restore blood flow as soon as possible and as safely and completely as possible.2 Approximately half of patients with anterior circulation ischaemic stroke will have a large artery occlusion (LAO),3,4 which carries the worst prognosis for recovery. The results of intravenous thrombolysis (IVT) using tissue plasminogen activator (Alteplase), delivered within 4.5 hours, in LAO stroke are disappointing with recanalisation rates <10% for the internal carotid artery and <33% for the middle cerebral artery.
