Dramatic motor recovery following recanalization in bilateral pontine
infarct with restricted diffusion
Acute basilar artery occlusions (BAO) that are not quickly recanalised
may leave the patient with severe motor detriment. Efficacies of current
treatments remain unclear. In our case of a 47-year-old-man presenting
with quadriparesis, MRI demonstrated bilateral pontine infarct. A year
after mechanical thrombectomy, he was fully ambulant.
