Case Presentation #22

A 27 year old man with no past medical history presented to ER with sudden left sided weakness and imbalance two weeks after COVID-19 diagnosis. Head CT showed no hemorrhage, no acute ischemic changes, and a hyper-dense basilar artery. CT angiography showed a mid-basilar occlusion. He underwent mechanical thrombectomy with recanalization of the basilar artery. His neurological exam improved and he was discharged to home after 4 days. In an outpatient PT clinic VR rehabilitation by Recovery Tech interactive game was planned for him in order to foster his recovery and return to independence. After nine weeks of virtual reality rehabilitation, increased muscle strength and reduced muscle fatigue led to a significant improvement in functional ability of his left upper extremity. At his 3 month follow up, he was back to normal and returned to the university.
