#ThrombectomyThursday – Right M1 occlusion successfully treated and shared here by Dr. Nathan Manning, neurointerventional surgeon and researcher based in Sydney, New South Wales. He uses a Sofia 6 as a “’snake” to take an M1 occlusion to TICI 3 in less than 5 mins (ADAPTx1).” While this technique is “not for all patients, note the ophthalmic artery (more [important] than syphon) and M1/A1 anatomy.”

Dr. Nathan Manning is the co-director of the NeuroIntervention Research Australia (NIRA) Institute, and a research fellow at both the Florey Institute of Neurosciences and Ingham Institute for Applied Medical Research. He is extensively published on the management of acute ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke, and has a strong clinical focus on the treatment of complex aneurysms and brain arteriovenous malformations (AVMs). Look for him presenting this coming May 2019 at WLNC (World Live Neurovascular Conference) in Barcelona, Spain.
