4] Randomised trials published in the past year have shown significant benefit of mechanical thrombectomy within 6 hours of onset over best medical treatment in patients with acute ischaemic stroke
due to proximal large-vessel occlusion (terminal internal carotid, middle cerebral and anterior cerebral arteries), with an absolute benefit (modified Rankin score 0-2 at 90 days) for functional outcome ranging from 13.
