Abstract syndrome complicated by a fatal intracranial hemorrhage as a consequence of endovascular recanalization of an occluded left subclavian artery. This entity is thought to be secondary to the failure of the normal autoregulatory mechanism controlling cerebral blood flow after recanali-zation. Patients at risk for this relatively rare complication are not easily identified. Further investigation is warranted to identify patients at risk for this complication and to determine optimal periprocedural management to decrease risk. Cerebral hyperperfusion syndrome was first recog-nized as a rare and sometimes fatal complication following carotid endarterectomy (1–6). With the ad-vent of carotid artery stent placement, the incidence of this complication may possibly be seen in a com-
