A 63-year-old female, hypertensive and diabetic, presented with transient ischemic attack involving right middle cerebral artery territory. MR revealed severe stenosis at the origin of the right internal carotid artery. Left ICA was blocked at its origin. The patient was planned for stent-assisted revascularization of the right ICA stenosis. Patient was on double antiplatelet therapy (Ecosprin 150 mg/day and Clopidogrel 75 mg/day) for 5 days before the procedure.
