Abstract

The importance of mechanical thrombectomy in acute stroke treatment has grown over recent years. Mechanical thrombectomy comprises many different techniques. Technical improvements in the catheter material have led to the development of large-bore distal access catheters which can enter tortuous intracranial vessels. This has promising applications for endovascular stroke treatment. This study evaluated the safety and success rate of ultra-distal access of the middle cerebral artery (MCA) M1 segment with the 5 Fr Navien 58 distal access catheter in the treatment of acute stroke in combination with stent retrievers.
