Stenting within a stent for treatment of residual dissection

Cathet Cardiovasc Diagn. 1997 Mar;40(3):319-21. doi: 10.1002/(sici)1097-0304(199703)40:3<319::aid-ccd24>3.0.co;2-i.

Abstract

We describe the management of residual dissection protruding through the struts of a Wiktor stent (Medtronic Inc., Minneapolis, MN) implanted in bailout conditions. In general, negotiating a stent through an expanded Wiktor stent is not recommended, but using this strategy, an AVE (Advanced Vascular Engineering, Santa Clara, CA) Micro stent was successfully implanted inside the Wiktor stent, leading to an excellent final angiographic result.
