abstract

  • The ISR rate with the Wingspan stent is higher in our series than previously reported, occurring in 29.7% of patients. ISR was more frequent within the anterior circulation than the posterior circulation. Although typically asymptomatic (76% of patients in our series), ISR can cause neurological symptoms and may require target vessel revascularization.
