Somewhat common. If you have arterial plaque in the carotid, you need to do something to continue blood supply to the head. A stent is one of the approved methods and often used in that circumstance.

What are the routes by which blood is supplied to the brain?

In humans, (and most other animals) the majority of the blood supplied to the brain comes from the internal and external carotid arteries and the vertebral ateries.Blood is pumped out of the heart into the aorta. The left common carotid artery branches off the aorta, as does the brachiocephalic artery. The right common carotid artery branches off the brachiocephalic artery. The common carotid arteries then become the internal and external carotid arteries which are the main sources of oxygenated blood to the brain.The left subclavian artery also branches off the aorta and the right subclavian artery branches off the brachiocephalic artery. The vertebral arteries branch off of these.
