Treatment outcomes of mechanical thrombectomy for acute stroke secondary to large-vessel occlusion in which the Asahi Fubuki was used as a guide catheter were reviewed. Among 154 patients treated with mechanical thrombectomy, the Fubuki was successfully delivered to the cervical ICA in 151 cases (98.1%) and the lesion was successfully crossed in 150 cases (97.4%). Median times to lesion crossing and revascularization were 9 and 19 minutes, respectively.
