Conventional endovascular therapy for acute ischemic stroke includes intraarterial pharmacologic thrombolysis with tissue plasminogen activator (TPA) administration with or without mechanical thrombectomy with a variety of devices. The present report describes two cases of stroke refractory to TPA administration in which successful recanalization was accomplished by the use of a self-expanding intracranial stent. Stent-assisted recanalization may be a viable option for patients with acute ischemic stroke refractory to thrombolysis or thrombectomy.
