Posterior circulation acute ischaemic stroke clinical diagnosis poses a challenge to the clinician and radiologist,
raised awareness of its complex clinical picture and potential neuroimaging pitfalls lead to prompter treatment (Fig.
While anterior circulation acute ischaemic stroke guidelines are well defined,
vertebrobasilar ischaemic stroke management still remains unclear.
Posterior circulation ischaemic stroke has a longer time to being diagnosed,
emphasizing the need for proper imaging studies,
including vertebral artery origins,
prevents delayed reperfusion (Fig.
Although tandem vertebrobasilar occlusions benefit from great technical success of endovascular treatment,
high mortality is still a challenge for neurointerventionalists.
