Safe implementation of mechanical thrombectomy in acute stroke patients with major arterial occlusion and concomitant subdural hematoma



Safe implementation of mechanical thrombectomy in acute stroke patients with major arterial occlusion and concomitant subdural hematoma



Neurointervention 8(2): 115-119



Mechanical thrombectomy (MT) alone in cases of large-vessel acute ischemic stroke (AIS) with a concomitant subdural hematoma (SDH) seems feasible and safe, but there's still a lack of evidence in the clinical literature. We report three cases of AIS with SDH, of which MT was performed with successful recanalization and no major changes in SDH: two elderly men with acute traumatic SDH and one man with incidental chronic SDH. (1) A 67-year-old man with acute traumatic SDH in the right side developed right middle cerebral artery (MCA) stroke, (2) a 72-year-old man with chronic SDH in the left side developed right MCA stroke, and (3) a 76-year-old-man with acute traumatic SDH in the right side developed top-of-basilar artery syndrome. As for AIS patients with a SDH, MT may be the only feasible and safe treatment option.
