Early restoration of flow to perfuse salvageable brain tissue has been shown to significantly reduce the morbidity and mortality of ischemic stroke. Several mechanical devices have shown promising results in patients with large vessel occlusive stroke. Solitaire revascularization device (ev3, Inc., Irvine, California) is a recoverable self-expanding thrombectomy device that can also be used as a temporary endovascular bypass. We report a patient in whom solitaire aneurysm bridging stent was used as a temporary bypass procedure to recanalize carotid T occlusion patient with good functional outcome.
