Intracranial brain vessel stenting

Intracranial brain vessel stenting is a minimally invasive procedure used to treat certain conditions affecting the blood vessels within the brain. It involves the insertion of a stent, a small mesh-like tube, into the affected blood vessel to help restore blood flow and support the vessel's structure. The stent is delivered through a catheter that is guided to the site of the blockage or narrowing in the blood vessel. Once in place, the stent expands, widening the vessel and allowing improved blood flow to the brain.

This procedure is commonly used to treat intracranial stenosis (narrowing of the blood vessels) or as part of the treatment for select cases of intracranial aneurysms. Intracranial brain vessel stenting offers a less invasive alternative to open surgery, with potentially shorter recovery times and reduced risks for patients.
