Abstract

A case of carotid artery stenting with an AngioGuard cerebral protection device is described in a patient with tight internal carotid stenosis. Deployment of AngioGuard induced sudden severe vasospasm, with subsequent minor stroke. According to our observations, AngioGuard may cause a vasospastic response with adverse neurologic effects.
