In patients presenting with a high clinical probability of posterior circulation stroke, unenhanced CT and CT-angiography are indicated in such circumstances to assess posterior circulation occlusion, showing the need for urgent revascularization.


Only NIHSS score at presentation and the TICI score at the end of the procedure were entered as predictors of a good clinical outcome of acute intracranial VBO2.


Poor outcomes and high mortality rates in association with the treatment of acute VBO had been historically shown in published case series. Neuroimaging tools provide an accurate  diagnosis and new endovascular technologies might make possible better clinical outcomes and to low mortality rates.
