Cerebral arterial stenosis is a leading cause of stroke and insufficient blood supply. Percutaneous Transluminal Cerebral Angioplasty and Stenting (PTCAS) have been identified as an efficient therapy to treat vertebrobasilar stenosis. Angioplasty with drug-eluting balloon is one of the endovascular treatments to obtain a good vessel patency and to improve patency in the long term follow-up. However, the feasibility to treat the basilar artery stenosis by Drug-Eluting Balloon has not been reported previously. We report a case of a 74-year-old woman with a severe stenosis of basilar artery stenosis that was treated successfully using Drug-Eluting Balloon procedure. The favorable outcomes observed in this patient suggests that drug- eluting balloon may be a promising treatment option for basilar artery stenosis.
