Conclusion

In our study, we did not found a relatioship between thrombus and recanalization success or neurological outcome in mechanical thrombectomy for middle cerebral artery occlusions.

 

Therefore, large clots should not be a contraindication for mechanical thrombectomy with stent retrievers.

 

It may be other factors that influence the rate of recanalization (clot density, clot composition...) or perhaps it is the sum of several of them which has the key for predicting succesful recanalization and neurological outcome.
