BACKGROUND: There is growing evidence for the efficacy of mechanical thrombectomy in acute stroke patients with large-vessel occlusions in the anterior circulation. Although distal occlusions of the middle cerebral artery (MCA) can cause severe clinical symptoms, endovascular therapy is not considered here as the first choice. The aim of our study was to prove the efficacy and safety of mechanical thrombectomy for distal occlusion types in the anterior circulation (M2-segment). METHODS: Stentretriever-based thrombectomy was performed in 119 patients with acute MCA occlusions between October 2011 and April 2013: 104 (87...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: New techniques have substantially raised recanalization rates of mechanical thrombectomy in acute ischemic stroke in the last few years with initial prospective trials reporting good neurological outcome in up to 58 % of the cases. However some recent reports questioning the benefit of endovascular therapy have initiated a discussion about the importance of patient-selection. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether an elongation of the carotid artery affects the angiographic outcome of the recanalization procedure in middle cerebral artery (MCA)-occlusions...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Acute occlusion of the carotid-T is associated with large ischemic lesions, poor outcome and up to 53 % mortality with conservative therapy. Endovascular mechanical thrombectomy (EMT) is a promising alternative treatment of large vessel occlusion. Here, we examine feasibility, safety and efficiency of EMT in acute ischemic stroke due to carotid-T-occlusion. METHODS: Single centre, retrospective analysis of 51 consecutive patients with acute occlusion of the carotid-T, treated by EMT within 6 h after symptom onset...
