Temporary endovascular bypass: a novel treatment for acute stroke.
Journal Article (Journal Article)
Intracranial stent placement is emerging as an effective treatment for acute stroke. As a means to avoid stent-associated complications and capitalize on stent-placement-related advantages, the concept of a "temporary endovascular bypass" (TEB) for stroke therapy was recently reported. In this technique, a stent is temporarily deployed for instant recanalization. Once sufficient flow is established to maintain vessel patency, the stent is recaptured and withdrawn. We report a second case to further characterize the merits of TEB.
