PURPOSE To investigate the pressure gradient and degree of flow reduction associated with embolus protection filters for carotid stenting in an in vitro experiment. METHODS Three filter devices with a perforated membrane design and one wire mesh type filter were tested. At a pressure of 70 mmHg, the flow reduction and pressure gradient were measured in a 5-mm tube using blood-mimicking fluid. RESULTS The pressure gradient in the wire mesh filter was 1.65+/-0.49 mmHg (95% CI 1.32 to 1.86… CONTINUE READING
