Abstract

While a stentriever thrombectomy is 70-75% successful in achieving recanalization (modified thrombolysis in cerebral ischemia [mTICI] 2b-3) of an anterior circulation intracranial large artery occlusion (ILAO), 25-30% of ILAOs remain refractory to a stentriever thrombectomy [1, 2]. The etiology of an acute ILAO can play a key role in the response to a stentriever; plus certain complications, such as inadvertent detachment, the stentriever getting stuck, and repeated reocclusion, have also been reported in relation to stroke etiology [3-8]. Therefore, this chapter discusses the pathomechanism of refractoriness to a stentriever, along with suggested solutions.
