Intrcranial Carotid Artery Blockage

My husband, age 53 was just diagnosed through an angiogram of a 98% blockage in his left intracranial carotid artery. We were told he was a perfect candidate for a stent trial so we enrolled. The computer randomly selected him to be placed on the medication side of this study (plavix & asprin). Honestly, what is the percentage that plaque from the closed artery will dislodge and if so the risks involved.
