24 Oct 06
Basilar artery occlusion is typically associated with a poor prognosis. The advent of high-quality, reliable, and noninvasive technology (eg, MRI) has made its diagnosis possible early in the course of the condition and has drawn attention to the fact that some patients with partial occlusion have limited ischemic injury and, therefore, a benign prognosis. Although outcomes continue to be poor, advances in thrombolysis and endovascular therapy may increase the survival rate and limit the disability rate.
