Objective: The safety of stenting for intracranial internal carotid artery stenosis using flow reversal embolic protection was evaluated.
Subjects and Methods: Of the 13 patients who underwent stenting between April 2011 and September 2016, those treated with (group F) and without (group N) flow reversal were compared retrospectively.
Results: An embolic complication was observed in one patient in the group N but none in the group F. The diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI)-positive rate was 0% in the F group.
Conclusion: Stenting for intracranial internal carotid artery stenosis using flow reversal is a safe and effective procedure.
