Abstract

"Extracranial carotid artery stenosis is responsible for approximately 20-30% of ischemic strokes. Traditionally, carotid artery stenosis has been treated with carotid endarterectomy. However, the low periprocedural complication rate and the mid term durability of carotid artery stenting has made it a competitive alternative treatment strategy. This update reviews the technical aspects of carotid artery stenting, clinical data supporting carotid artery stenting-particularly in high risk patients, and the complications associated with carotid artery stenting.".
