The Procedure
No IV-tPA was given to this patient since it was a wake up stroke.
Professor Geyik and the Medical Park team decided to treat the patient with thrombectomy using a NeVa M1 (4 mm x 30 mm) under distal aspiration. Full recanalization was possible in a single pass.

First Pass Success with NeVa M1 (4mm x 30mm)
Thrombectomy was done under distal aspiration with NeVa M1 (4mm x 30mm) using captive technique (partial retrieval of NeVa into the DAC tip).

Full recanalization (TICI 3) was possible with a single pass and significant thrombus was observed within the device.

Several minutes after recanalization, progressive narrowing of the MCA was observed, which was eventually treated with PTA and stenting.

Clinical Success
24 hour NIHSS of the patient was 2.
Patient evaluation at 1 month showed excellent recovery with an NIHSS score of 0 and mRS score of 0.
At VESALIO, we feel blessed to be part of the stroke field where together with these dedicated physicians, we can make an incredible impact on people’s lives.
Thank you Istanbul!
