A manual carotid compression technique to overcome difficult filter protection device retrieval during carotid artery stenting.

Abstract

BACKGROUND We investigated the incidence of embolic protection device retrieval difficulties at carotid artery stenting (CAS) with a closed-cell stent and demonstrated the usefulness of a manual carotid compression assist technique. METHODS Between July 2010 and October 2013, we performed 156 CAS procedures using self-expandable closed-cell stents. All… (More)
