Recent data suggested aspiration thrombectomy as the first-pass approach in endovascular treatment of acute stroke and is accepted as a safe and efficient alternative to stent-retriever thrombectomy. The efficiency of mechanical thrombectomy for complete removal of the clot is directly related to the catheter trackability, aspiration force, and inner diameter of the aspiration catheter. Zoom 71 Aspiration catheter (Imperative Care, Campbell, California, USA) is a novel aspiration catheter with a beveled tip aiming to increase the tip surface area, increased suction force, and advanced trackability. This case report describes the successful use of Zoom 71 aspiration catheter in a left middle cerebral artery M2 branch occlusion and highlights technical details including navigation without the support of a microcatheter microwire combination.
