Carotid Artery Stenting With Proximal Embolic Protection Utilizing Flow Reversal System

Monday 11/04/13 | 8,130 reads

ABSTRACT: Carotid artery stenting is a complex endovascular intervention with an expected steep learning curve that warrants protection against microembolization and potentially disastrous adverse events. We present herein a case with the potential for microembolization mitigated by the use of proximal embolic protection utilizing a flow reversal system.
