Although carotid endarectomy (CEA) has long been considered the gold standard technique, recent studies report that short- and long-term results with carotid angioplasty and stenting(CAS) are comparable to those with CEA in a significant number of cases. Covering clinical assessment, techniques and devices, medical treatment, and more, Angioplasty and Stenting of the Carotid and Supra-Aortic Trunks reviews the state of the art in CAS. The editors have drawn together a panel of experts to provide an up-to-date snapshot that summarizes current, relevant knowledge about endovascular interventional therapy for carotid disease. They present a broad overview of approaches and techniques, a discussion of protection devices and potential pitfalls, and coverage of methods to reduce potential complications, select and enlarge indications, and improve short- and long-term results. A report from the leading edge of medical science, this resource supplies the cutting-edge information you need to determine when it is appropriate to use CAS.
