Embolic stroke: post-thrombectomy digital subtraction angiography

Anteroposterior (left) and lateral (right) views of the intracranial arteries after contrast injection into the right common carotid artery show the successful result after thrombectomy (thrombolysis in cerebral infarction scale 3). All middle cerebral artery branches are contrasted without residual filling defects and without delay compared to the anterior cerebral artery branches. (Contributed by Kristine Ann Blackham MD.)
