Background: The Enterprise Vascular Reconstruction Device and Delivery System (Cordis; the Enterprise stent) was approved for use in conjunction with coiling of wide-necked aneurysms in 2007. No published long-term aneurysm occlusion or complication data exist for the Enterprise system.
Objective: We compiled data on consecutive patients treated with Enterprise stent-assisted coiling of aneurysms from nine high-volume neurointerventional centers.
Methods: An eight-center registry was created to evaluate large volume data on the delayed safety and efficacy of the Enterprise stent system. Pooled data were compiled for consecutive patients undergoing Enterprise stent-assisted coiling at each institution prior to May 2009.
BACKGROUND: Stenting for symptomatic intracranial atherosclerotic disease (ICAD) is a therapeutic option in patients who fail medical therapy.
OBJECTIVE: To determine the peri-procedural complication rates and midterm restenosis rates in patients treated with balloon expandable stents (BES) compared to self expanding stents (SES).
METHODS: A retrospective review of consecutive patients treated with intracranial stents at 5 institutions was performed. Predictors of 30 day stroke and death as well as midterm restenosis rates were analyzed.
