Invitation to Participate in Anaesthesiological Routine Care for Thrombectomy In Cerebral Ischaemia (ARCTIC-I) – An International Prospective Observational Study


The choice of anesthetic technique for endovascular stroke thrombectomy, and its impact on outcomes has been debated for a while now. ARCTIC-I is an international, prospective, observational study that aims to provide an overview of anesthesia care during endovascular thrombectomy around the world, and identify factors associated with post-procedure neurological outcomes. The study is sponsored by ESAIC (European Society of Anaesthesia and Intensive Care) and endorsed by SNACC. The study details are available on

Any hospital that performs endovascular stroke thrombectomy routinely involving anesthesia care is welcome to contribute as a study centre. You can register online:
