Contralateral Occluded Carotid Defines Revascularization Strategy

A significative lesion to the carotid artery in addition to contralateral carotid occlusion is an obvious factor of high risk for a revascularization procedure. However, this might be true for surgery but not for carotid artery stenting according to this recent publication in JACC. The presence of contralateral carotid occlusion has been established as high

Natural History of Severe and Asymptomatic Carotid Lesions

Deciding whether to intervene a severe (70-80%) carotid lesion in an asymptomatic patient is challenging. We know the margin of error is small and an excess of events caused by the intervention could tilt the scales. However, the updated information on the natural evolution of these lesions is scarce. This retrospective analysis included asymptomatic patients

Asymptomatic Carotid Artery Stenosis: Do We Have All the Answers?

Advancements in therapies to reduce the impact of stroke in asymptomatic carotid artery stenosis have been hard to come by over the last decade. Several points of disagreement among published randomized trials prevented their information from being integrated into daily clinical practice. However, over the past 5 years, there has been some alignment, allowing for this

New Device for More Protection in Carotid Artery Stenting

This new “Paladin” system for post-dilation during carotid artery stenting was safe and may effectively reduce the number of particles that reach the brain, with a subsequent decreased risk for peri-procedural stroke. This study evaluated the safety and efficacy of the Paladin System, a novel post-dilation balloon with an integrated distal protection filter designed to

Paladin: New Carotid Protection System with Good Results

Courtesy of Dr. Carlos Fava. Carotid artery stenting (CAS) with a cerebral protection system has emerged as an alternative to surgery, particularly for patients with high surgical risk. Nowadays, there are a considerable number of cerebral protection systems, but these may sometimes fail due to anatomical issues, the diameter of embolized particles, or placement difficulties (among

Efficacy of Micromesh-Covered Stents in Carotid Artery Stenting

Most literature, old and recent, associates carotid artery stenting with a higher rate of stroke (although minor) when compared with carotid endarterectomy during the acute period. However, 30-day outcomes of angioplasty and surgery are comparable. Many technical advancements, including new stent designs and different cerebral protection mechanisms, have improved the outcomes of angioplasty in clinical
