Figure 2. Digital Subtraction Angiography (DSA) and 24-hour control MRI in the Same Patient. DSA showing occlusion of the left posterior cerebral artery (PCA) in the P2 segment (empty arrow) with patent right posterior inferior cerebellar artery (PICA) (thin arrow) (A), with positioned stent retriever from the left P1 to the P2 segment (B). DSA showing complete recanalization of the PCA (thick arrows) and occlusion of the common origin of the right PICA and anterior inferior cerebellar artery (AICA) (thin arrow) due to partial thrombus dislocation (C). Post-procedural DSA showing complete reperfusion of the PICA and AICA (arrow) (D). 24-hour diffusion weighted imaging (DWI) showing a new subacute small cerebellar ischemia (arrow) in the right PICA territory (E) and 24-hour fluid-attenuated inversion recover (FLAIR) images showing the known left hippocampal infarction (arrows) (F).
