Objective: We report two cases of thrombectomy for upper extremity artery occlusion with major cerebral artery occlusion using mechanical thrombectomy devices for acute ischemic stroke.

Case Presentations: Case 1 was a 79-year-old woman admitted for left internal carotid artery occlusion and left upper extremity artery occlusion. Case 2 was an 87-year-old woman admitted for left middle cerebral artery occlusion and bilateral upper extremity artery occlusion. After performing mechanical thrombectomy for the cerebral artery, we achieved good recanalization of the brachial artery using the same devices in Case 1 and Case 2.

Conclusions: Thrombectomy using acute ischemic stroke mechanical thrombectomy devices for upper extremity artery occlusion is useful for recanalization.
