Full Abstract: Two cases of ischemic stroke due to carotid artery dissection occurring during wind instrument playing, probably caused by increased intrathoracic and subsequent intrapharyngeal pressure, are presented. A review of the literature revealed three similar patients with other types of cerebrovascular events, such as paradoxical cerebral embolism due to a patent foramen ovale and spinal epidural hematoma during trumpet playing.
