Beschreibung:
  • MR imaging in a 73-year-old man presenting with hemispheric stroke revealed a subcortical diffusion-weighted imaging lesion associated with a high-grade stenosis of the proximal internal carotid artery, which suggested hemodynamic infarction. Collateral supply was absent. After failure of conservative therapy, successful unprotected carotid artery stent placement (CAS) was performed followed by a complete neurologic recovery. Emergency CAS should be considered in acute stroke patients with severe hemodynamic impairment if conservative treatment options are not successful.
