Transcervical carotid stenting with internal carotid artery flow reversal: feasibility and preliminary results.
OBJECTIVE Transfemoral carotid artery stenting (CAS), with or without distal protection, is associated with risk for cerebral and peripheral embolism and access site complications. To establishExpand

Transcervical carotid artery stenting with flow reversal eliminates emboli during stenting: why does it work and what are the advantages with this approach.
Carotid artery stenting (CAS) remains under scrutiny because of the controversial results of major trials that compared it with carotid endarterectomy. However, the question of how the results ofExpand

A diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging-based study of transcervical carotid stenting with flow reversal versus transfemoral filter protection.
BACKGROUND Transfemoral carotid artery stenting (CAS) has been associated with a high incidence of embolic phenomena and silent brain infarction. The goal of this study was to compare the incidenceExpand

Carotid angioplasty with internal carotid artery flow reversal is well tolerated in the awake patient.
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the neurologic tolerance and changes in ipsilateral hemispheric oxygen saturation during transcervical carotid artery stenting with internalExpand

Transcervical carotid stenting with carotid artery flow reversal: 3-year follow-up of 103 stents.
OBJECTIVE This study evaluated the perioperative and 3-year follow-up results of 103 consecutive carotid artery stenting (CAS) procedures done with a transcervical approach using carotid flowExpand

A prospective evaluation of cerebral infarction following transcervical carotid stenting with carotid flow reversal.
OBJECTIVE Cerebral embolisation constitutes the main source of complications during transfemoral carotid artery stenting (CAS) and is associated with a high incidence of silent brain infarction. TheExpand

Transcervical Carotid Artery Angioplasty and Stenting with Carotid Flow Reversal: Surgical Technique
We have performed this technique in 40 patients with carotid artery stenosis. No deaths or strokes have occured. During the initial experience, one patient in whom flow reversal was not properlyExpand

Renal embolization and nephrectomy in a single surgical act in high-risk renal tumor pathology.
BACKGROUND Renal artery embolization is a procedure that has been shown to be useful as a concomitant treatment for the resection of large renal tumors. Over the years, preoperative renal arteryExpand

Reliability of preoperative duplex scanning in designing a therapeutic strategy for chronic lower limb ischemia.
The objective of this study was to compare the treatment plan designed on the basis of preoperative duplex scanning evaluation of the critical limb ischemia with the treatment plan finally carriedExpand

Screening Algorithm for Aortoiliac Occlusive Disease Using Duplex Ultrasonography–Acquired Velocity Spectra from the Distal External Iliac Artery
Aortoiliac duplex scanning can be difficult to perform owing to the deep location of these vessels. We propose a new method to indirectly screen for aortoiliac disease by performing duplexExpand
