Endovascular treatment of acute ischemic stroke has become the first choice of treatment in large cerebral vessel occlusions, with a very high efficacy in terms of revascularization and reducing disability of affected patients. Revolutionizing acute therapy, it induced important paradigm shifts in the concepts of time and salvageable brain. In this review we focus on the current concepts of patient selection, imaging, techniques and perspectives of endovascular stroke treatment.
