Aims: Limited studies have compared the effectiveness of Solitaire and Trevo stentrievers for endovascular thrombectomy to achieve recanalization and improve functional outcomes of patients with acute ischemic stroke. Therefore, we compared the safety and efficacy of the two stents during endovascular thrombectomy for patients with acute ischemic stroke.
Materials and Methods: This study included 130 patients who underwent endovascular thrombectomy using either the Trevo (n = 51) or the Solitaire (n = 79) stent for anterior circulation acute ischemic stroke. Recanalization was classified using thrombolysis in cerebral infarction (TICI) grading. Efficacy and safety of the devices during endovascular thrombectomy were analyzed by evaluating the rate of good recanalization after the first pass, clot retrieval rate, final recanalization grade, use of rescue treatment, recanalization time, and hemorrhagic and thromboembolic complications.
Results: Overall, good recanalization (TICI grades 2b and 3) was achieved (Solitaire: n = 57, 72.2%; Trevo: n = 46, 90.2%) (P = 0.01). The rate of good recanalization after the first pass and clot retrieval rate were similar between groups; however, the use of rescue treatment was more frequent in the Solitaire group. Recanalization time was shorter in the Trevo group. The good clinical outcome rate was higher in the Trevo group but not statistically significantly. The rates of symptomatic hemorrhage and thromboembolism were not significantly different between groups.
Conclusion: The Trevo stent achieved more successful recanalization with less need for rescue treatment and less time for recanalization than the Solitaire stent. There was no statistically significant difference in the clinical outcomes.
