Abstract

Large vessel ischemic stroke is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality throughout the world. Recent advances in endovascular stroke treatment are changing the treatment paradigm for these patients. This concepts article summarizes the time-dependent nature of stroke care and evaluates the recent advancements in endovascular treatment. These advancements have significant implications for out-of-hospital, hospital, and regional systems of stroke care. Emergency medicine clinicians have a central role in implementing these systems that will ensure timely treatment of patients and selection of those who may benefit from endovascular care.
