74] A study on middle cerebral artery (MCA) stroke demonstrated that IV thrombolysis had nearly no potential for recanalizing thrombi measuring more than 8 mm in length;[76] on the contrary, thrombus length appears to have no impact on reperfusion success of endovascular therapy;[74] therefore, it might be more appropriate to treat patients who are detected with long thrombus on SWI with endovascular therapy, instead of IV thrombolysis.
5) In this case, as in other reports of intracavernous anastomosis, (23,6-8) the intracavernous vessel continues as the middle cerebral artery (MCA), while the A1 segment of the anterior cerebral artery (ACA) ipsilateral to the absent ICA is aplastic or hypoplastic; this is slightly different than Lie's original description in which the intracavernous anastomosis supplies both the MCA and ACA territories.
