Abstract

Case Description: We describe a case of the patient with multiple contraindications for thrombolysis who underwent successful mechanical embolectomy for occlusion of the right carotid terminus. Her pre-procedural NIHSS was 16. Discussion: The patient demonstrated remarkable recovery within an hour of the procedure, and this clinical improvement was sustained at followup. Results: This case illustrates that mechanical embolectomy is a safe and potentially very effective intervention to treat major intracranial vessel occlusions in patients with multiple contraindications for thrombolysis.
