Abstract

Acute ischemic stroke (AIS) is one of the major causes of death worldwide and a leading cause of disability. Until recently treatment of AIS was supportive, and in a minority of patients intravenous thrombolysis was available but with marginal clinical benefit. With the advent of stent retrievers, distal aspiration catheters as well as improved patient selection neurologic outcomes have greatly improved. However, the care of patients with AIS is still challenging and requires the early recognition of stroke symptoms, extensive diagnostic testing, early intervention, and advanced nursing and critical care.
