Large vessel occlusion with acute embolic stroke (AIS) is usually undergo embolectomy attempt within 24 hours on last known normal. Embolectomy leads to clots extraction and improvement of distal flow to minimize or complete reversal of AIS. The size of clot extracted is usually in different fragments. One complete extraction of full occlusive clot is rare. The chance of extraction does down with extend of occlusion, duration, type of clot, and location. Here we describe a single pass extraction of over 10 cm clot which improved the distal flow with marked reduction is neurological weakness.
