Cardiovascular Conference Series: Neuroendovascular Management of Emergent Large Vessel Occlusions
Acute ischemic stroke (AIS) is the fifth leading cause of death, and remains the leading cause of disability in the U.S. There are an estimated 680 000 new strokes per year in the nation, with a mortality rate of 53%–94%, and an even greater morbidity. It is estimated that 3–22% of these patients are candidates for endovascular therapy. In addition to baseline stroke severity, emergent large vessel occlusion (ELVO) has been shown to be an independent predictor of poor outcome at six months. While intravenous recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (IV r-tPA) has proven efficacious predominantly for small cerebral vessel occlusions, endovascular therapies, including stent retriever based, and aspiration-based mechanical thrombectomy techniques, and intra-arterial administration of thrombolytic agents have been shown to achieve higher rates of recanalization in patients with ELVO. Please join Dr. Guilherme Dabus as he presents on the neuroendovascular management of emergent large vessel occlusions.
