BACKGROUND The Stenting and Aggressive Medical Management for Preventing Recurrent Stroke in Intracranial Stenosis (SAMMPRIS) study stopped recruiting patients because of higher-than-expected perioperative morbidity of primary stenting in patients with symptomatic intracranial stenosis. An alternative treatment, submaximal angioplasty without stenting, performed concurrently with SAMMPRIS, may offer revascularization benefits with a lower incidence of stenting-related risks.
