Abstract

This report describes a case of stent implantation in a right internal carotid artery with severe distal tortuosity, which caused difficulty in advancing a filter protection device. Advancement of the introducing sheath at the level of the carotid bifurcation and exchange for a third-generation distal filter protection device overcame the problem.
