Recurrent Sensory Transient Ischemic Attacks treated by Urgent Endovascular Revascularization

A 47-year-old man presented with recurrent transient right hemiparesthesia and right homonymous hemianopsia. The transient ischemic attacks (TIAs) may be related to hemodynamic disturbance caused by acute occlusion of the internal carotid artery with severe stenosis of the ipsilateral posterior cerebral artery. After urgent endovascular revascularization of the internal carotid artery, there were no further attacks. Our case suggests that repetitive sensory TIAs can be induced by a hemodynamic disturbance caused by a large artery stenosis, which can be prevented with urgent endovascular treatment.KeyWords:Transient ischemic attacks, Cerebral revascularization, Stents
