Abstract

Ischemic stroke is the most common neurological complication of cardiac catheterization resulting in a high morbidity and mortality. We present a 44-year-old man admitted for vasospastic angina that suffered a right middle cerebral artery (MCA) occlusion after a cardiac catheterization. Mechanical thrombectomy was indicated and complete arterial recanalization was achieved. The material obtained showed a fragment of a healthy artery. Partial radial endarterectomy and cerebral embolization may be a rare complication of cardiac catheterization. Copyright © 2018 Elsevier Masson SAS. All rights reserved.
