Summary Ischemic stroke is a major public health problem worldwide, considered as the third most costly health condition in developed countries, with urgent reperfusion remaining the paramount goal for its treatment. In line with the results of recent randomized control trials, the introduction of stent retrievers was a major advancement in the treatment of stroke; however, interventionalists sometimes encounter thrombi not-retrievable by applying conventional techniques. In this article, we present a case treated by an innovative double-stent retrieval in Y-configuration that may potentially help other clinicians in similar situations.
