[Use of covered stents in the endovascular treatment of extracranial stenosis of the internal carotid artery]

SZÓLICS Alex, VÖRÖS Erika, SZTRIHA László, SZIKRA Péter, SZÓLICS Miklós, PALKÓ András

[INTRODUCTION - Significant stenosis of the internal carotid artery is frequently treated with stent placement. With growing clinical experience and usage of finer instrumentation, the incidence of periprocedural complications have reduced in larger centers.
