Basilar artery (BA) thrombosis is a severe condition that has a high percentage of mortality if no treatment is performed. Recanalization is the most successful way of reducing mortality and improving outcome in patients with BA thrombosis. We present a case of a patient that presented to our hospital 12 h after onset of symptoms in which a combination of techniques were used to perform a vertebrobasilar recanalization.
