Acute ischemic stroke is a condition that requires timely recognition to initiate optimal acute stroke therapies, reducing morbidity and mortality.  Posterior circulation strokes, in particular, can be difficult to recognize and are commonly misdiagnosed in the emergency setting.  Join TeleSpecialists' Dr. Benzion Blech, board certified neurologist with a fellowship in Vascular Neurology, to review the mechanisms, signs and symptoms, and management options for posterior circulation strokes.
