Concomitant Asymptomatic Intracranial Atherosclerotic Stenosis Increase the 30-Day Risk of Stroke in Patients Undergoing Symptomatic Intracranial Atherosclerotic Stenosis Stenting

In the Stenting and Aggressive Medical Management for Preventing Recurrent Stroke in Intracranial Stenosis (SAMMPRIS) trial, 19.1% of ischemic strokes occurred out of the territory of previously symptomatic stenosis during the mean follow-up period of 23.4 months.

The objective of this study was to investigate whether the concomitant asymptomatic ICAS influences the outcome of patients undergoing symptomatic ICAS stenting.
