Received Date: February 26, 2020; Published Date: March 06, 2020
Background and Purpose: The natural process of and treatment plan to prevent intraprocedural carotid stent thrombosis progression have not been clearly described.
Summary of case: We report the case of a 63-year-old male in whom successful regression of an intraprocedural carotid stent thrombus without clinical aggravation was achieved with antiplatelet agent use during and after stent placement.
Conclusion: The present case illustrates the regression process of an intraprocedural carotid stent thrombosis following the administration of antiplatelet agents during and after the intervention.
