Abstract

We report a case of basilar artery dissection presenting with subarachnoid hemorrhage, which was successfully treated with self-expandable stent placement and coil embolization, achieving excellent clinical and anatomical outcome. This method can provide protection of the rupture point, collapse of dissected space within the vessel wall, and prevention of further dissection although long-term outcome needs to be seen.
