Emergency Extracranial-to-Intracranial Bypass after Thromboembolic Occlusion of the Middle Cerebral Artery Following GDC Embolization of a Ruptured ACoA Aneurysm.

Abstract

SUMMARY We report a case of thromboembolic occlusion of the middle cerebral artery after endovascular treatment of a ruptured anterior communicating artery aneurysm. When fibrinolytic therapy failed to recanalize the occluded vessel, an emergency extracranial-to-intracranial bypass was performed. This intervention rescued our patient from cerebral… (More)
