An 8-F multipurpose guide catheter was positioned just proximal to the origin of the innominate artery. 5-mm Accunet DEPD was parked in the distal right CCA. A 10 3 30 mm Acculink stent was deployed across the stenosis. Post-stenting runs showed that the origin of the vessel had not been entirely covered as would be appropriate (to ensure that the proximal vessel is entirely covered, some protrusion of the stent into the lumen of the aorta is usually tolerated). Therefore, a second Acculink stent (10 3 20 mm) was deployed, slightly more proximally so as to cover the ostium.

1C 1B 1A A dynamic left VA angiogram was performed. ╇ A–C. Left subclavian artery injections, AP projection. A. The head is in neutral position. At the C5–C6 level, a focal stenotic lesion (arrow) is present. B. There is no change with the head turned to the right. C. With the head turned to the left, the lesion becomes occlusive. The patient became symptomatic every time she turned her head to the left. No evidence of intracranial stenosis was found. 2A 2B 2C P rocedure:╇ A 5 3 20 mm Acculink stent was placed across the stenotic portion of the left VA (Figure 2B).
