Stents Carotid

Carotid artery stenting is used to reopen carotid arteries narrowed by atherosclerotic lesions. The stent is designed to proper open a vessel segment treated with balloon angioplasty. Carotid plaques cause reduced blood flow to the brain and stroke. The alternative procedure is surgical endarterectomy, where the vessel is opened and the plaque removed.

A carotid artery atherosclerotic plaque blockage at the bifurcation seen here can cause strokes. The stenting these lesions is a less invasive way of treating than open vessel surgery. The SVS has issued guidelines to help guide credentialing for the carotid stent procedure. Image from Vital Images.
