What’s the webinar about?

The webinar discusses the latest studies in the field of thrombectomy.

Key message

While there were multiple high-quality studies in the field of thrombectomy in acute stroke patients with large vessel occlusion (LVO) in 2021, multiple challenges in decision making for specific conditions persist.

What will you learn?

  • Multiple challenges in decision making for EVT in specific conditions persist.
  • Current evidence does not justify withholding EVT from BAO patients as none of the RCTs showed any signal of superiority of BMT alone vs. EVT.
  • There is no confirmation of non-inferiority in EVT only patients vs. EVT + BMT.
  • Patients with low ASPECTS, more distal vessel occlusions and patients with low NIHSS scores should be included into RCTs if possible.
  • Without participation in a RCT, patients should be selected for EVT based on age, severity and type of neurological impairment, time since symptom onset, location of the ischemic lesion, and perhaps also results of advanced imaging.
