Abstract

Endovascular therapy has become a promising alternative for patients who are ineligible for IV thrombolysis or for whom it has failed. Greater knowledge about the composition of thromboembolic material underlying the vascular occlusion in stroke patients may provide the means for improving existing endovascular therapies and developing new treatment strategies. The objective of this article is to provide a review of clinical and experimental animal studies on the histology, imaging correlation, and ultrastructure of thromboemboli retrieved during acute ischemic stroke.
