How to choose adequate devices for Childhood stroke ?
Acute ischemic stroke in childhood is a rare condition. Moreover, due to significant delays in diagnosis, treatment is frequently offered late. Knowledge about the effectiveness and safety of endovascular thrombectomy in children is limited. However, existing data suggest that it is feasible and safe. Given the condition’s rarity and the low number of thrombectomy procedures, practitioners may face this life-threatening situation without adequate pre-procedural experience.
Recommendations for interventionalists performing thrombectomy procedures in children:
Dedicated protocols, including potential devices used, should be set in place in thrombectomy-capable centers to reduce incertitude and delay during a potential emergency.
