Thrombolysis and stenting in acute proximal occlusion of the vertebral artery

Abstract:
Background: In acute stroke, the benefit of recanalization has been established for occluded intracranial arteries. Reopening of cervical vessels is mostly regarded as too dangerous and prone to enlarge the cerebral infarction. Case Report: We report on a patient, in whom a proximally occluded vertebral artery was reperfused after lysis for brainstem ischemia. To prevent rapid reocclusion, dilatation and stenting were performed using neuroprotection without further clinical deterioration.
