Endovascular treatment of ischemic stroke has developed rapidly in recent years. I performed my first mechanical stroke treatment with a dedicated stroke device in a patient included in the penumbra trial that was published in AJNR in 2008. This patient showed a dramatic improvement of his … more »

Flat panel detector (FPD) angiographic systems have been widely introduced into neurointerventional suites. They primarily allow the acquisition of high-quality 3D rotational angiography, but also allow us to obtain CT-like cross-sectional soft tissue imaging with different reconstruction modalities. FPD technology has been shown to permit fast … more »
