Interventional neuroradiology plays a continuously expanding and exciting role in the treatment of acute stroke, as evidenced by the development of several important advances, including the advent of multiple new devices and therapies. Furthermore, guidelines regarding endovascular interventions in the setting of acute stroke have been developed and used. In addition to technological advances, the field of pharmacology in the setting of acute stroke is constantly evolving. In a rapidly expanding field, we aim to review significant recent advances related to the endovascular treatment of stroke as well as provide perspective for future directions.
