What is the webinar about?

Mechanical thrombectomy can be done with various techniques. Primary combined approaches are performed with the simultaneous use of a stent retriever and an aspiration catheter. In this webinar we discuss the most important details of the primary combined approach we daily use and call SAVE (Stentretriever Assisted Vacuum-locked Extraction), the modifications we have applied over the years, the use of SAVE in combination with a transradial approach and the extracranial use of SAVE. Additionally, we will discuss primary combined approaches in the treatment of tandem occlusions.

Learning objectives

  • Understanding of the key elements of a primary combined approach (PCA)
  • Modifications of PCA for carotid-T or tandem occlusions
  • Comparison with other techniques (e.g. ADAPT), discussion of the current studies and future perspectives
