Aortic arch thrombosis (AAT) is a potentially life threatening condition in neonates. We report 3 neonates with AAT and complete occlusion of a unilateral internal carotid artery with multiple cerebral infarcts. Multidisciplinary input led to deferral of thrombolytic therapy and surgical thrombectomy owing to the potential risk of hemorrhage within the infarcts. All the neonates were treated with low-molecular weight heparin treatment alone without any complications. Thrombus resolution was… CONTINUE READING
