Endovascular treatment for stroke

Shortly after a clot occludes a cerebral artery, cells in the infarct core—the most severely ischaemic area—start dying. The tissue surrounding the ischaemic core, the penumbra, is hypoperfused and at risk of progressing to infarction over minutes to hours, depending on the degree of ischaemia. The goal of treatment for acute stroke is to restore blood flow to these potentially salvageable areas as soon as possible. Thrombolysis is traditionally used, but in this issue Rodrigues and colleagues (doi:10.1136/bmj.i1754) summarise the evidence supporting mechanical thrombectomy.1
