Symptomatic Carotid Arteries: Early or Late Emergency Revascularization?

Symptomatic Carotid Arteries: Early or Late Emergency Revascularization?

Carotid endarterectomy continues to be the safest technique for emergency revascularization. However, 48 hours after index event, different strategy outcomes will become comparable.  Multiple advances in device development have brought promising results for carotid revascularization patients with symptomatic stenosis. Regardless these developments, optimal revascularization timing after index event remains unclear.  This study included patients with


One Year of Successful Carotid Artery Stenting with the CGuard Device

This registry of daily clinical practice suggests that this specifically designed double-mesh carotid stent is safe and associated with a minimal and acceptable occurrence of neurological events up to 12 months of follow-up. This double-mesh stent has already been tested, and its short- and long-term efficacy has been proven. However, more recent data have challenged the

Webinar SOLACI Peripheral | Carotid Percutaneous Interventiones Where Are we?

SOLACI PERIPHERAL | Watch again Carotid Percutaneous Interventions, Where are we? on our Youtube Account

Watch again our Webinar on “Carotid Percutaneous Interventions, Where are we?” on our Youtube account. The event was conducted and organised by the authorities of SOLACI Peripheral, a new Department of SOLACI.  We thank the support of Cordis for this event and to all the prestigious panelists that participated in it.   We are interested

SOLACI Peripheral | Clinical Case Discussion

SOLACI’s Department of Peripheral Endovascular Interventions is promoting the analysis of challenging clinical cases on peripheral interventions so as to foster the participation and engagement of all SOLACI members. In this first issue, we present a clinical case around carotid artery stenting. Read thoroughly the case below and take part in an unrestricted discussion through

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

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
