This chapter, found in the headache section of the book, provides a succinct synopsis of a key study examining the imaging selection and endovascular treatment for ischemic stroke. This summary outlines the study methodology and design, major results, limitations and criticisms, related studies and additional information, and clinical implications. Researchers found that a favorable penumbral pattern by computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging does not help identify patients who would benefit from endovascular therapy for acute stroke, and that embolectomy is not superior to standard care with regard to clinical and imaging outcomes for acute ischemic stroke. In addition to outlining the most salient features of the study, a clinical vignette and imaging example are included in order to provide relevant clinical context.
