Internal Carotid Artery Occlusion - Case
- A 59 year-old man presented with a mild expressive aphasia and subtle
right sided weakness. His subsequent MRI showed a new embolic stroke in the
left frontal lobe.
- Cerebral Angiogram, left common carotid
artery injection, lateral view. Note that the left internal carotid artery is
completely occluded. Presumably, at the time of occlusion, an
artery to artery embolus occurred resulting in the frontal lobe stroke.
