Branch atheromatous disease (BAD) is a subtype of ischemic stroke caused by perforating arteries occlusion due to proximal atherosclerosis of the arteries. Early neurological deterioration and recurrent stereotyped transient ischemic attacks are typical clinical manifestations of BAD. The optimal treatment for BAD has not been determined. This article explores a possible mechanism of BAD and effective treatment measures to prevent early progression and attack of transient ischemic events. This article explains the current status of intravenous thrombolysis, tirofiban, and argatroban for BAD and subsequent prognosis.
