PURPOSE To compare debris release with primary stent application (self-expanding stent application at stenosis and then balloon dilation through the opened stent) and that with secondary stent application (balloon angioplasty of stenosis and afterward additional stent application) for high-grade internal carotid artery stenosis in human cadaveric specimens. MATERIALS AND METHODS Fresh human cadaveric internal carotid artery specimens were attached to a tube system. High-grade stenoses (>66… CONTINUE READING
