PURPOSE To assess the effectiveness, technical aspects, handling, and safety of the micromesh Roadsaver Carotid Artery Stent in the treatment of atherosclerotic carotid artery stenosis and tandem lesions in ischemic stroke patients. METHODS Seven patients (5 men; mean age 75±11.4 years, range 53-86) suffering from symptomatic internal carotid artery (ICA)(More)
To compare the performance differences of three carotid artery stents in high-risk elderly patients without embolic protection devices (EPDs) on the basis of stent design, procedure-related complications, conveniences in handling, in-stent restenosis, 30-day outcome, and long-term follow-up. A total of 101 symptomatic internal carotid stenoses of 94(More)
Having evolved at a rapid pace, the therapy options for percutaneous treatment of peripheral arterial disease in the lower limbs, especially percutaneous transluminal angioplasty in combination with stent-technology, are able to deliver a rate where at least 80% of the treated patients remain free from reintervention after the first years under ideal study(More)
As the minimal invasive procedures for the treatment of peripheral arterial disease grow at exponential rates, interventional radiologists and vascular surgeons are more often faced with the difficult decision of which devices are the most appropriate to bring the desired results. Under the light of the newest studies and always having in mind the concept(More)
We present a very rare variation of a persistent primitive hypoglossal artery (PPHA) arising from the internal carotid artery, detected during a diagnostic angiography. A 50-year-old female patient was admitted with an atypical intracranial hematoma in the left frontal lobe. Catheter angiography revealed intracranial vasculopathy with segmental stenoses, a(More)
