Abstract

Extracranial carotid artery dissection is a major cause of ischemic stroke in young patients. Progressive stroke or recurrent ischemic symptoms may occur despite adequate medical treatment. Our treatment policy for these conditions is based on the fact that immediate vascular reconstruction is necessary in the cases with angiographic flow stasis in the true lumen beyond the dissection site. We report our experiences with four consecutive extracranial carotid artery dissections successfully treated with early endovascular stenting and discuss the indication of this treatment with a special emphasis on the angiographic findings.
