PEREZ BAZTARRICA, Gabriel; SALVAGGIO, Flavio  and  PORCILE, Rafael. Recurrent ischemic stroke: do not forget the aortoembolic pathology. Gac Med Bol [online]. 2018, vol.41, n.2, pp.35-36. ISSN 1012-2966.

Atherosclerotic disease of the aorta is one of the cardiovascular causes of embolism. The prevalence of this pathology is an indicator of worse prognosis, particularly in the case of aortic debris. The aortic debris is constituted by an atheromatous plaque complicated by a mobile thrombus attached. We present the case of a 58-year-old patient who presented repeated episodes of ischemic strokes.

Keywords : stroke; embolism aortic; debris.
