Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Endovascular therapy (EVT) is now broadly recognized as one of the most powerful treatments for acute stroke caused by large-vessel occlusion. Recent advancements in acute ischemic stroke management via EVT have led to significant reductions in the morbidity and mortality rates in selected patients with large vessel, occlusions. Despite these developments, post-stroke disability remains pervasive and further studies are warranted to establish the role of EVT in posterior circulation and distal vessel occlusions, with the need for the development of new and effective techniques for the revascularization of small vessels.

Many of these questions are the subject of current or upcoming clinical trials.  This Special Issue aims to gather up-to-date publications regarding endovascular therapy for ischemic stroke and updates in pre-peri and post-procedural management. This information will help improve acute stroke management and provide new perspectives for current clinical practice.

We are looking forward to your contributions to this Special Issue.

Prof. Dr. Iris Quasar Grunwald
Guest Editor
