Innominate artery occlusion is a rare condition that may cause symptoms in the anterior cerebral circulation, vertebrobasilar system and upper extremity, while it can also be asymptomatic. We report Doppler ultrasound and digital subtraction angiography (DSA) findings of the right subclavian artery and right common carotid artery filling with retrograde flow from the ipsilateral vertebral artery due to innominate artery occlusion. We aimed to discuss the results of primary stenting together with its technical and clinical success.
