Abstract

The endovascular treatment of vasospasm is effective when implemented rapidly. However its indication often proves difficult on account of the lack of diagnostic arguments or the difficulties in obtaining them in daily practice. We report a case that highlights the relevance of MRI in the decision-making process. A 37-year-old patient presented with symptomatic vasospasm of the middle cerebral artery and was subjected to morphological, diffusion- and perfusion-weighted MRI. These investigations confirmed the presence of significant oligemia in the MCA territory and revealed onsetting diffusion disorders. Angioplasty was immediately performed, resulting in normal diffusion and hemodynamic parameters and complete regression of clinical signs. This case highlights the relevance of MRI when assessing vasospasm before treatment. Coupled with transcranial Doppler, it should help teams quickly select patients most likely to benefit from angioplasty.
