This case involves a 25-year-old patient who suffered an ischemic stroke shortly after an aortic stent repair. The patient had a history of dilated cardiomyopathy, and he had received a heart transplant after reaching end-stage cardiac failure. Following this procedure, a covered CP stent was placed due to the discovery of aortic stenosis. However, shortly after it was implanted the stent fractured and a piece lodged in one of the patient’s extremities. It was recommended that stainless steel stents be placed inside the fractured stent to hold it in place. The procedure was completed, however, it was noted that the patient was disoriented and lethargic for an extended period post-surgery, and paralysis of the patient’s left side was also noted. A CT scan revealed a middle cerebral artery stroke. Since the surgery, the patient has suffered serious cognitive and neurological deficits from the stroke.
