Abstract:

"More than eight in 10 strokes happen because an artery becomes blocked, causing a sudden loss of blood flow to part of the brain. Ongoing lack of blood flow can lead to permanent brain damage. Treating these types of strokes involves trying to open the blocked blood vessels so the blood can flow again. The blockages can be removed using drugs or different types of surgery. Still, when the blockage is in the large artery, current treatments are not always enough to clear it. Newer devices may do a better job of clearing large blood vessels and helping patients recover from stroke. This study investigated how safe, effective, and cost-effective these new devices are. We found that they improved patients' ability to live independently after a stroke caused by a blockage in a large artery. They were as safe as current treatment options, and they were also cost-effective"--Key Messages.
