The risk of restenosis post intracranial and extracranial artery stenting is 20-40%, therefore, in the past, aspirin and clopidogrel were performed as anticoagulant therapy post stenting.But this treatment had limited effectiveness upon restenosis. Argatroban is a selective thrombin inhibitor, and previous study had suggested that argatroban use post PCI could potentially prevent reocclusion. But there has no study on large sample of argatroban treated restenosis post cranial stenting. This study will test the safety and efficacy of the argatroban on prevent occlusion and restenosis in patients with intracranial and extracranial artery stenting.

A group of conditions due to overexposure to or overexertion in excess environmental temperature. It includes heat cramps, which are non-emergent and treated by salt replacement; HEAT EXHAUSTION, which is more serious, treated with fluid and salt replacement; and HEAT STROKE, a condition most commonly affecting extremes of age, especially the elderly, accompanied by convulsions, delusions, or coma and treated with cooling the body and replacement of fluids and salts. (From Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)
The process by which a person or group of persons comes to be regarded or treated as lacking in human qualities.
A large group of rod-shaped bacteria that retains the crystal violet stain when treated by Gram's method.
A system of therapeutics founded by Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843), based on the Law of Similars where "like cures like". Diseases are treated by highly diluted substances that cause, in healthy persons, symptoms like those of the disease to be treated. The dilutions are repeated so many times that there is less than one molecule per dose and it is suggested that benefit is from the energetic life force of the original substance.
A group of anaerobic coccoid bacteria that show up as pink (negative) when treated by the gram-staining method.
