PURPOSE To present a technique for internal carotid artery stenting (CAS) with dual cerebral protection in patients with high-grade stenosis caused by large, soft atherosclerotic plaques.

A Spider filter is delivered to the distal internal carotid artery. All procedural steps of CAS are performed… CONTINUE READING
