OBJECTIVE The clinical significance of Haemodynamic Depression (HD) during carotid stenting (CAS) remains unclear. The aim of this study was to analyze the frequency and predictors of HD during CAS in a single centre experience. METHODS A prospective protocol for CAS was applied in a 15-month interval. Patients with restenosis, on betablockers, or with arrhythmias were excluded. A standardized dose of atropine (0.4mg) was given prior to stent deployment. Changes in heart rate, blood pressure… CONTINUE READING
