Title: Endovascular implantation of covered stents in the extracranial carotid and vertebral arteries: Case series and review of the literature
Author(s): Alaraj, Ali; Wallace, Adam; Amin-Hanjani, Sepideh; Charbel, Fady T.; Aletich, Victor
Subject(s): endovascular vertebrojugular fistula
Abstract: Background : Covered stents are used endovascularly to seal arterial wall defects while preserving vessel patency. This report describes our experience with the use of covered stents to treat cervical pathology, and a review of the literature in regards to this topic is presented. Case Description : Two patients presenting with the carotid blowout syndrome and one patient with a vertebrojugular fistula were treated with covered stents. This allowed for preservation of the vessel and was a treatment alternative to cerebral bypass. Conclusion : Covered stents provide a viable means of preserving the cervical vessels in selected patients; however, long-term follow-up is necessary to determine stent patency and permanency of hemostasis.
