Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Stroke is the second leading cause of both disability and death worldwide, with about 17 million strokes per year globally. Despite the notable increase in the population of patients eligible for acute stroke intervention, access to acute stroke care and utilization of mechanical thrombectomy is lagging in these patients. Spreading awareness to increase the proportion of thrombectomies for eligible patients is needed. In addition, we are currently witnessing a rapid evolution in stroke medical devices, neuroimaging, and neuroprotection.

This Special Issue “Clinical Aspects of Cerebral Ischemia” aims to underline the latest advances in the stroke field, welcoming submissions that focus on prevention, improved detection, access to care, management, and therapeutic interventions.
