BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The use of bare metal stents to treat symptomatic intracranial stenosis may be associated with significant restenosis rates. The advent of drug-eluting stents (DESs) in the coronary circulation has resulted in a reduction of restenosis rates. We report our technical success rate and short-term restenosis rates after stenting with DESs in the intracranial and extracranial circulation. METHODS This study was a retrospective review of the period between April 1, 2004, and… CONTINUE READING
