Acute ischemic stroke due to large vessel occlusion is a serious disease with very high morbidity and mortality. Recent randomized controlled trials (MR CLEAN, ESCAPE, EXTEND IA) have shown the benefit of endovascular treatment. There are other trials like SWIFT PRIME and REVASCAT, which have either been stopped or put on hold; these results are also likely to be available soon. This lecture will summarize the results of these trials, discuss its implications and key messages. In addition, there will be further discussion on future directions.

In this lecture, Dr. Goyal will discuss:

1. The results of recent endovascular trials.
2. The key differences between these trials.
3. Key results regarding patient selection, imaging and workflow.
4. Implications for acute stroke care.
5. Future directions.
