Intracranial hemorrhage following carotid artery stenting (CAS) is a rare but potentially devastating complication. The present study reviewed intracranial hemorrhage cases from patients undergoing CAS in ten years to find the methods to rescue patients from this fatal complication. Patients with postoperative intracranial hemorrhage following CAS were retrospectively selected, and clinical features, treatments and outcomes were studied. Ten patients with intracranial hemorrhage were identified. The mean onset time of hemorrhage was 6.1-/+7.1h. Intracerebral hemorrhage occurred in eight patients and SAH in two patients. The patients were treated by stopping anti-platelet and anticoagulant for at least three days, and surgical drainage of the hematoma/ventricle drainage or conservative treatment. Six patients survived, two had left moderate paralysis, four had a good recovery at four week follow-up, and four patients died. No patients underwent thrombosis in stent after withdrawing of antiplatelet and anticoagulant. Intracranial hemorrhage after CAS occurs usually in a few hours and leads to catastrophic results. Once patients have intracranial hemorrhage, good neurocritical care may help to save them. Stopping antiplatelet and anticoagulant for at least three days may avoid thrombosis in the stenting site.
