Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A cerebral infarction (CI) is a common complication of coronary angiography (CAG); however, repeated CIs in the immediate period after a CAG have not been reported yet. The patient in the present study experienced left upper quadrant blindness immediately after internal thoracic arteriography, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed a high-intensity area in the right occipital lobe. Despite the administration of antithrombotic therapy, the patient became transiently comatose for 6 hours. MRI showed a new high-intensity area in the left thalamus. A noninvasive assessment should be considered before internal thoracic arteriography to prevent the risk of complications.
