The effect of endovascular treatment for ischemic stroke varies between individual patients and is highly time-dependent. The overall aim of this thesis was to increase the benefit of endovascular treatment by optimizing prediction of outcome and treatment effect (Part I), reducing treatment delay (Part II), and improving prehospital triage strategies (Part III).
