Abstract

Vessel rupture is a rare complication of angioplasty and stent placement of the supraaortic arteries occurring in two (1.1%) of 180 vessels treated at our institution. Many different approaches to the management of this complication have been proposed. In this report, we present our experience with conservative management in two cases in which vessel rupture occurred and review the relevant literature.
