Abstract

Basilar artery occlusion (BAO) represents 1–4% of ischemic strokes and includes variable symptoms, resulting in delayed diagnosis. Treatment is not codified and outcome depends on the severity of clinical presentation and extent of the occlusion. We present a case of two patients with BAO and we discuss treatment protocols.
