Abstract: Background: Intravenous thrombolysis is effective in patients with minor stroke but not in patients with moderate or major stroke due to large vessel occlusion. Endovascular stroke treatment offers a high recanalization rate, which is associated with favorable neurological outcome. The aim of our studies was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of the endovascular stroke treatment in the anterior and posterior circulation, respectively, as performed in the Neurointerventional unit of Sahlgrenska ... more
