Abstract

 Stroke remains a major health care challenge worldwide and is the third leading cause of death and the leading cause of disability in developed countries. The management of acute ischemic stroke has advanced greatly over the past 20 years. Now the treatment of stroke can be describe with one word- variety.

The current review is dedicated to the problems of endovascular treatment in acute ischemic stroke. The different methods of treatment, pros and cons of each of them, discussing the different options for the patients are presented. 


Keywords
