Abstract

Carotid stenting has become an accepted alternative in patients with carotid stenosis. The purpose of this article is to review the relevant trials, describe the different devices available for stenting, the devices for cerebral protection, as well as describe techniques and tricks for successful carotid artery stenting. Understanding how to appropriately preoperatively evaluate patients and intra- and postoperative procedures, carotid artery stenting can be a safe procedure.
