About this book


This book contains a compilation of the revolution of mechanical thrombectomy (MT) in the treatment of strokes. The initial chapters summarize information about the best medical management of acute ischemic stroke, imaging modalities and patient selection for MT. The book then focuses on the nuances of MT, providing detailed information about the best approaches for anesthesia during MT, access, intra-arterial thrombolysis, recent devices and catheters and technical pitfalls of MT. A specific chapter is dedicated to MT in the venous system. This is followed by a chapter about the most common complications of MT and post-procedural care of these patients. The last chapter covers different aspects of acute stroke care and MT in the developing world. The authors of this book comprise of a multidisciplinary group of world experts in the field and were encouraged to include teaching cases to deliver a book with a practical approach.

Acute Stroke Management in the Era of Thrombectomy is intended for all healthcare providers who care for patients with stroke; with special emphasis for the proceduralists who are interested in technical tips to improve outcomes and minimize complications.
