Subclavian steal syndrome is a clinical feature displayed due to decrease or reverse of blood flow in the ipsilateral vertebral artery resulting from severe stenosis

or occlusion of the proximal subclavian artery. Subclavian steal syndrome was first described and defined by angiography. The best treatment of subclavian steal

syndrome is still controversial, although balloon angioplasty and/or stenting procedures have been generally accepted during the past decade. We report a case of

subclavian steal syndrome successfully treated by stenting of the left subclavian artery in our interventional neurology clinic. (Turkish Journal of Neurology 2013;
