Abstract

The incidence of cerebral infarction following upper gastrointestinal endoscopic procedures is well described in the existing literature, with most mechanisms involving arterial travel of the embolus. We describe a case of cerebral infarction not explained by previously described mechanisms and detail the proposed occurrence of retrograde venous air embolism causing cerebral infarction following an upper gastrointestinal endoscopic procedure.
