Acute ischemic stroke is caused by a clot in the vessels of the brain and is treated by resolving or removing the clot, treatment known as reperfusion therapy. Until recently, the only proven reperfusion therapy was intravenous alteplase administered within 4.5 hours after symptom onset. As not all patients are eligible for this particular form of treatment and it is less effective in patients presenting with severe strokes, Olvert Berkhemer explores alternative options for removing the clot with intra-arterial treatment. He also evaluates the treatment effect within different subgroups, to pave the way for more personalised treatment options in the future.
