To investigate the safety and effectiveness of recanalization in non-acute occlusion of intracranial internal carotid arteries using the flexible Enterprise self-expanding stent.

Endovascular treatment options for internal carotid artery (ICA) dissection with tandem intracranial occlusion are evolving. We report 2 cases of stent reconstruction of carotid loop dissections.
Tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) therapy for chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) has been associated with progressive peripheral arterial disease and, more recently, rare cases of intracranial vascular sten...
Comparison of postsurgical clinical sequences between completely embolized and incompletely embolized patients with wide nicked intracranial aneurysms treated with stent assisted coil embolization technique: A STROBE-compliant study.
The technique of stent-assisted coil embolization has been widely used in the clinic, while its efficacy and safety have yet to be evaluated. This study investigates the values of computed tomography ...
To investigate the endovascular treatment (stenting with or without coiling) of cervical and intracranial lesions associated with internal carotid artery (ICA) redundancy.
Calcifications of the intracranial internal carotid artery (iICA) are an important risk factor for stroke. The calcifications can occur both in the intimal and medial layer of the vascular wall. The a...
To investigate the long-term effects of intracranial implantation of Enterprise stent system versus antiplatelet medication on neurologic deficits, daily living abilities, and carotid arte...
To evaluate the safety and feasibility of the Cordis Neurovascular Self-Expanding Stent System to facilitate endovascular coil embolization of wide neck saccular intracranial aneurysms. ...
Intracranial aneurysm treatment with coil embolization is associated with relatively low complete occlusion and high recanalization rates. The investigators evaluate whether Willis covered...
Cordis Self Expanding Stent for use with embolic coils for the treatment of wide-neck, intracranial, saccular aneurysms arising from a parent vessel
Atherosclerotic intracranial arterial（ICA） stenosis and intracranial aneurysms are the common causes of ischemic stroke and hemorrhagic stroke, respectively. Investigators aimed to ass...
The splitting of the vessel wall in one or both (left and right) internal carotid arteries (CAROTID ARTERY, INTERNAL). Interstitial hemorrhage into the media of the vessel wall can lead to occlusion of the internal carotid artery and aneurysm formation.
Narrowing or stricture of any part of the CAROTID ARTERIES, most often due to atherosclerotic plaque formation. Ulcerations may form in atherosclerotic plaques and induce THROMBUS formation. Platelet or cholesterol emboli may arise from stenotic carotid lesions and induce a TRANSIENT ISCHEMIC ATTACK; CEREBROVASCULAR ACCIDENT; or temporary blindness (AMAUROSIS FUGAX).

The two principal arteries supplying the structures of the head and neck. They ascend in the neck, one on each side, and at the level of the upper border of the thyroid cartilage, each divides into two branches, the external (CAROTID ARTERY, EXTERNAL) and internal (CAROTID ARTERY, INTERNAL) carotid arteries.
Pathological conditions involving the CAROTID ARTERIES, including the common, internal, and external carotid arteries. ATHEROSCLEROSIS and TRAUMA are relatively frequent causes of carotid artery pathology.
Damages to the CAROTID ARTERIES caused either by blunt force or penetrating trauma, such as CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA; THORACIC INJURIES; and NECK INJURIES. Damaged carotid arteries can lead to CAROTID ARTERY THROMBOSIS; CAROTID-CAVERNOUS SINUS FISTULA; pseudoaneurysm formation; and INTERNAL CAROTID ARTERY DISSECTION.

A stent is a small mesh tube that's used to treat narrow or weak arteries. Arteries are blood vessels that carry blood away from your heart to other parts of your body. A stent is placed in an artery as part of a procedure called angioplasty. &...
Acute Coronary Syndromes ACS
Acute Coronary Syndromes (ACS) is an umbrella term for situations where the blood supplied to the heart muscle is suddenly blocked. Treatment for acute coronary syndrome includes medicines and a procedure known as angioplasty, during which doctors inflat...
