Cerebral ischemia detected with diffusion-weighted MR imaging after stent implantation in the carotid artery.

Abstract

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Concern regarding the safety of stent implantation in the carotid artery exists because of the risk of cerebral embolization during the procedure. The purpose of this prospective study was to determine the incidence of new areas of cerebral ischemia, as detected by using diffusion-weighted MR imaging after stent implantation in the… (More)
