Abstract

  • Emergent endovascular revascularization is currently mainstay for patients presenting with emergent Large Vessel Occlusion (LVO) of the intracranial circulation
  • Stroke symptoms affecting smaller vessels can carry significant morbidity
  • Newer technologies and greater experience with the endovascular approach make treatment for small vessel occlusions increasingly more manageable
  • This is more relevant in patients presenting outside the tPA window with poor collateral circulation
  • We present our technical institutional experience with the endovascular management of acute occlusions of the M2-M3 MCA, A1-A2 ACA and P1-P2 PCA territories.
