SONOlysis in Prevention of Brain Infarctions dUring Carotid Stenting and caroTid EndaRterectomy "SONOBUSTER"


Phase 3 Results

Summary of Purpose

The aim of the project is to demonstrate a fibrinolytic effect of sonothrombolysis (continual transcranial Doppler monitoring) using 2 MegaHertz (MHz) diagnostic probe on the reduction of risk of brain infarctions due to the activation of endogenous fibrinolytic system during carotid endarterectomy (CEA) and carotid stenting (CS). 240 patients indicated for CEA (120 patients) and CS (120 patients) will be...
