Effects of Cerebral Protection With Filters vs. Flow Reversal on Cerebral Embolization After Carotid Artery Stenting


Phase N/A Results N/A

Summary of Purpose

Carotid artery stenting (CAS) with cerebral embolic protection is the preferred treatment for narrowing of the carotid arteries in patients at high risk for open surgery. Special devices are used to protect the brain from particles(emboli) that may break off when the narrowing or blockage is cleared during the...
