Pathophysiology of flow impairment during carotid artery stenting with an embolus protection filter

Abstract

Carotid artery stenting (CAS) is a well-accepted treatment for atherosclerotic stenosis of carotid arteries. Since the occurrence of distal embolization with CAS is still a major concern embolus protection devices (EPD) are usually employed during the procedure. We examined two types of embolus protection filters (Angioguard XP (AG); Filterwire EZ (FW)) and… (More)
