Eligibility for endovascular thrombectomy is defined as ischaemic stroke caused by a large vessel occlusion in the internal carotid artery, proximal cerebral artery (M1 segment), or with tandem occlusion of both the cervical carotid and intracranial arteries. Endovascular thrombectomy should be undertaken when the procedure can be commenced within six hours of stroke onset. (Goyal et al. 2016) or between 6-24 hours after they were last known to be well if clinical and CT perfusion or MRI features indicate the presence of salvageable brain tissue (Nogueira et al. 2017, Albers et al. 2018).

This indicator only applies to hospitals able to provide endovascular thrombectomy.
