Neurointerventional Lab Thrombectomy (NIL)

In many cases, patients presenting with an acute stroke are suffering from an intracranial large vessel occlusion. This medical emergency is caused by a blood clot obstructing flow to a major brain artery. This leads to an insufficient amount of blood supply to the brain. If untreated, the brain tissue may die, causing a stroke.
