Emergent basilar artery and bilateral posterior cerebral artery angioplasty, urokinase thrombolysis, and stenting for acute basilar artery occlusion secondary to diagnostic cardiac catheterization: case presentation



Emergent basilar artery and bilateral posterior cerebral artery angioplasty, urokinase thrombolysis, and stenting for acute basilar artery occlusion secondary to diagnostic cardiac catheterization: case presentation



Journal of Neuroimaging 15(4): 315-318



This case presentation describes the use of emergent neurointerventional procedures to revascularize a patient who developed a symptomatic stroke during coronary artery angiography. Rapid identification of a neurologic deficit in the coronary angiography suite and notification of a skilled neurointerventionalist permit for early revascularization and improved patient outcomes.
