dc.description.abstract In this clinical report, we examined a single-center experience by using the Solitaire FR Revascularization Device in the treatment of acute ischemic stroke in which there was poor initial visualization of the occluded arterial branches by using biplanar cerebral angiography. In all cases, adjunctive C-arm CT was used during the deployment of the thrombectomy device to gain additional information regarding device placement and expansion. Outcome measures included the extent of reperfusion, posttreatment changes in NIHSS scores, posttreatment TICI scores, cerebral hemorrhage, and survival. Clot removal with successful arterial recanalization was achieved in 15/18 cases (83.3%) with TICI scores of 2b/3 in all patients who had initial recanalization. The NIHSS score improved, on average, from 19 pretreatment to 11 posttreatment, and 72% of patients survived. In cases of acute stroke in which there is little information available regarding the positioning and deployment of a retrievable stent during mechanical thrombectomy, the use of C-arm CT may provide more information about device placement across an area of thrombus. en_US
