Abstract

Purpose: Ischaemic stroke due to occlusion of large cerebral vessels has a poor prognosis. The clinical outcome is related to efficacy and timing of recanalisation of the occluded arteries. We report our experience with a thrombus aspiration device (Penumbra), and focus on pre- and postprocedural management. Materials and methods: We retrospectively reviewed 18 consecutive patients with acute ischaemic stroke due to the occlusion of large cerebral vessels who were treated with mechanical thrombolysis at our centre between September 2009 and July 2010. Preprocedural symptoms were quantified using the National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS). Mechanical thrombolysis was performed with the Penumbra system. Intravenous thrombolysis was done only if
