The last three decades have seen significant advances in stroke therapeutics that have resulted in the development of medical and endovascular interventions for acute revascularization. After acute treatment, it is recommended that patients are transferred to a stroke or intensive care unit for careful assessments. The goal of the immediate postoperative care is to provide continuous observation of vital signs, vascular access site checks, and cardiac monitoring and to administer uniform neurological evaluations to capture clinical fluctuations and/or complications. The purpose of this chapter is to provide a contemporary perspective based on recent data, along with the authors’ recommendations on the acute care and management of acute ischemic stroke patients post revascularization.
