Francisco Mont'Alverne and Raul Nogueira from Brazil present the results of the RESILIENT randomized clinical trial, which evaluates for the first time the benefits of mechanical thrombectomy in large-vessel occlusion strokes (LVOS) on a sample of patients in a non-developed country, Brazil. The trial asked if thrombectomy outcomes might be different in countries with lower resources.
