Stroke remains among the leading causes of disability and death worldwide. Fibrinolytic therapy is associated with poor patency and functional outcomes. Recently, multiple randomized trials have been published that have consolidated the role of endovascular therapy for ischemic stroke due to large vessel occlusion in the anterior cerebral circulation. This manuscript reviews the current understanding of the endovascular management of acute stroke including technical aspects and current evidence base.
