During local intra-arterial thrombolysis (LIT), management of the secondary embolization of a fragmented or dislodged clot can be cumbersome. The fate could be dismal if without pursuit and lysis of the migrated clot. Recently, we successfully managed a patient with acute ischemia due to a large clot impinged in the mid basilar trunk while avoiding distal migration of the clot by containing the impinged clot using a self-expandable stent during LIT.
