abstract

  • The successful angiographic and clinical results observed in our case of intra-extracranial stenting of a long dissection contributes to the literature of carotid dissection treated with multiple stents. The excellent mid-term follow-up in our patient confirms the efficacy of this treatment and good tolerance to multiple stents. To our knowledge this is the first case of spontaneous dissection treated with stenting including the distal supraclinoid segment, through an extensive proximally dissected artery.
