ADAPT is the newest technique in treating Acute Ischemic Stroke caused by the blockage of blood flow to an area of the brain. Published in April 2013 in the Journal of NeuroInterventional Surgery (JNIS) by a consortium of Stroke Centers from around the US, the technique involves placing a 5MAX or 5MAX ACE aspiration device at the face of the clot and aspirating until the device becomes occlusive . The device is then gently withdrawn under continuous aspiration until the intact thrombus is removed.
