Embolectomy for stroke with emergent large vessel occlusion (ELVO): report of the Standards and Guidelines Committee of the Society of NeuroInterventional Surgery

Stroke is the leading cause of adult disability in North America and is the fifth most common cause of death. The natural history of patients with acute ischemic stroke and occlusion of a major intracranial vessel such as the internal carotid artery (ICA), middle cerebral artery (MCA), or basilar artery is dismal, with high rates of mortality and low rates of disability-free survival. We introduce the term 'Emergent Large Vessel Occlusion (ELVO)' to describe this clinical scenario.
