Conclusion Distal middle cerebral artery thrombectomy with stent-retriever devices is achievable and can be safe and technically effective. Randomized controlled trials have not been performed to determine if thrombectomy in or distal to the M2-3 junction is more beneficial than other techniques, such as aspiration thrombectomy, intravenous thrombolysis, or maximum medical therapy.
