abstract

  • Embolism with brain infarction rarely complicates calcific aortic stenosis (CAS). We report a case with severe CAS where the patient experienced multiple embolic strokes immediately following retrograde heart catheterization. Calcific emboli in the cerebral arteries were demonstrated by computed tomography (CT).
