Abstract

Intracranial high-resolution vessel wall magnetic resonance imaging evidence of vessel wall inflammation is present following stent retriever manipulation but absent following aspiration thrombectomy. This is presented in a case of rotatory vertebral artery compression causing multiple posterior circulation infarctions requiring multiple separate aspiration and stent retriever thrombectomies.
