Learning objectives: Since 2015 there has been mounting class Ia evidence that mechanical thrombectomy is superior to thrombolysis alone for acute ischaemic stroke.   We provide a review of this evidence to update clinical practice and demonstrate the subgroups for which the evidence is strongest.  

Background: Immediate treatment of ischaemic stroke aims to restore perfusion to the ischaemic brain. The gold standard of care at present (in those that are eligible) consists of thrombolysis using intra-venous tissue plasminogen activator (IV-tPA). Approximately 11.5% of ischaemic strokes receive this treatme[...]

Findings and procedure details: Methods:   Systematic review of RCTs and subsequent meta-analyses comparing endovascular thrombectomy in acute stroke to standard care alone since 2015. In total 10 RCTs and 2 meta-analyses were deemed appropriate after multiple author review. A further discussion of relevant supplementary rese[...]

Conclusion: There is a growing body of class Ia evidence that thrombectomy in addition to standard care is superior to standard care involving thrombolysis alone. Clinical outcomes measured using the mRS show a clear benefit in these trials.   The most robust data is delivered by the HERMES15 meta-analysis[...]
