Abstract

A thrombolytic therapy is still more and more commonly used treatment in the cases of the brain ischemia of the vascular origin. Despite the growing experience in this kind of therapy, its clinical efficacy seems to be still not sufficient. Looking for the new ways of the acute brain ischemia treatment, the potential role of the brain vessel thrombectomy is taken into account. In the paper, the own experiences concerning the treatment of 28 patients with ischemic stroke who underwent intracranial endovascular interventions due to the acute vessel occlusion, are presented.
