Vertebral artery stenting: problem of restenosis

Cover Page

Abstract

Balloon angioplasty with stenting is actual uninvasive and safe method of vertebral arteries stenosis treatment, having high level of technical success. But high rate of restenosis development is leading problem of endovascular intervention. In review the problem of restenosis development after vertebral artery proximal part stenting is being discussed as well as its clinical onset, possible cause and factors promoting its formation and probable direction of this problem solving.
