The no-reflow phenomenon (NRP) after successful vascular recanalization in acute ischemic stroke (AIS) has become a major cause of poor clinical prognosis and ineffective recanalization. However, there is currently no clear definition or unified clinical assessment method for the NRP. Therefore, it is urgent to clarify the clinical evaluation criteria for the NRP and develop new no-reflow evaluation techniques so that remedial treatment can be applied to AIS patients suffering from the NRP. In this brief review, a variety of NRP assessment methods and defining criteria for clinical practice are presented.
