. . . In conclusion, we now have evidence that mechanical thrombectomy can improve patient outcomes from successive, independent, randomized trials with different selection paradigms. With >1700 intravenous r-tPA–treated subjects enrolled in these and additional endovascular trials, we look forward to initiating patient-level pooled analyses through a large-scale, international collaboration. These analyses will advance our understanding of optimal patient selection criteria for endovascular therapy in daily clinical practice and will allow us to plan future clinical trials to further enhance outcomes after acute ischemic stroke.
