Diffusion Weighted-MRI Based Evaluation of the Effectiveness of Endovascular Clamping During Carotid Artery Stenting With the Mo.Ma Device.
The purpose of this study is to detect new ischemic lesions after carotid artery stenting (with the Cristallo Ideale stent), in patients with high grade carotid artery stenosis, by diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DW-MRI), using the endovascular proximal flow blockage (Mo.Ma device) for cerebral protection.

Carotid Artery Injuries
Damages to the CAROTID ARTERIES caused either by blunt force or penetrating trauma, such as CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA; THORACIC INJURIES; and NECK INJURIES. Damaged carotid arteries can lead to CAROTID ARTERY THROMBOSIS; CAROTID-CAVERNOUS SINUS FISTULA; pseudoaneurysm formation; and INTERNAL CAROTID ARTERY DISSECTION.

Carotid Artery Diseases
Pathological conditions involving the CAROTID ARTERIES, including the common, internal, and external carotid arteries. ATHEROSCLEROSIS and TRAUMA are relatively frequent causes of carotid artery pathology.
Carotid Artery, Common
The two principal arteries supplying the structures of the head and neck. They ascend in the neck, one on each side, and at the level of the upper border of the thyroid cartilage, each divides into two branches, the external (CAROTID ARTERY, EXTERNAL) and internal (CAROTID ARTERY, INTERNAL) carotid arteries.
Carotid Artery, Internal, Dissection
The splitting of the vessel wall in one or both (left and right) internal carotid arteries (CAROTID ARTERY, INTERNAL). Interstitial hemorrhage into the media of the vessel wall can lead to occlusion of the internal carotid artery and aneurysm formation.
Either of the two principal arteries on both sides of the neck that supply blood to the head and neck; each divides into two branches, the internal carotid artery and the external carotid artery.
The study is being conducted to demonstrate the non-inferiority of carotid artery stenting (CAS) using the Emboshield® Embolic Protection System and Emboshield® Pro Embolic Protection Sy...
The objective of the ARMOUR study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the Mo.Ma proximal flow blockage cerebral protection device for patients at high surgical risk for carotid...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate ischemic events and neuropsychological changes after carotid artery angioplasty and stenting with a neuroprotection device.
To evaluate the safety and efficacy of the Bard ViVEXX Carotid Stent and Emboshield BareWire Rapid Exchange Embolic Protection System in the treatment of extracranial carotid artery stenos...
The purpose of the Carotid Revascularization Endarterectomy versus Stenting Trial (CREST) is to compare the relatively new procedure of stent-assisted carotid angioplasty (CAS) to the trad...
A 54-year-old man with symptomatic internal carotid artery stenosis with absence of the common carotid artery (CCA), who had been treated with surgery and postoperative radiotherapy for tonsillar carc...
The purpose of this study is to demonstrate the technical success of carotid artery stenting in acute extracranial internal carotid artery (ICA) occlusion as well as the benefit in clinical outcome.
To compare the effect on cognition of carotid artery stenting (CAS) and carotid endarterectomy (CEA) for symptomatic carotid artery stenosis.
The author presents a technique for endarterectomy and reconstruction of the carotid bifurcation in difficult cases when the plaque extends high into the internal carotid artery. The technique combine...
Background: Recent studies have suggested that carotid artery angioplasty and stenting (CAS) is a safe alternative to carotid endarterectomy (CEA) in average risk patients
