Endovascular treatment for ischemic stroke induced by vertebrobasilar junction artery dissection: 2 case reports.
Vasc Endovascular Surg. 2012 Jan; 46(1):58-61.VE

Abstract

We reported 2 cases of vertebrobasilar junction artery dissection treated by different methods. Intra-artery thrombolysis was used to treat 1 patient, who died 53 hours after the procedure. The other case was treated by stenting for unaffected vertebral artery associated with a coil occlusion of affected vertebral artery, and the prognosis was good. These cases suggest that occlusion of proximal side of the vertebral artery affected by dissection and stenting for the junction between the other side of vertebral artery and the basilar artery may be a feasible method for vertebrobasilar junction artery dissection with or without thrombolysis.
