Answer

Two stent retriever devices, the Trevo Retriever and Solitaire Device, were susequently shown to have better angiographic and clinical outcomes than the Merci Retriever. [20, 21]   While these trials included patients with primarily anterior circulation strokes, vertebrobasilar occlusions were also included.
