Abstract

Indonesia is facing increasing stroke prevalence in the past 5 years. Ischemic stroke imposes economic and productivity burden if it is not addressed properly. Endovascular treatment studies are conducted in developed countries where facilities and cost do not count in therapy consideration if it is indicated. Developing countries like Indonesia should work hard to provide the best hyperacute stroke care with protocol deviation and limitation. This is the first review on endovascular treatment practice in a top single-center hospital in Indonesia. Further improvement is needed to catch up with state-of-the-art hyperacute ischemic stroke treatment.
