Carotid Artery Stenting With Protection Registry

2014-08-27 03:45:02 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to evaluate ischemic events and neuropsychological changes after carotid artery angioplasty and stenting with a neuroprotection device.

Description

Stroke is the third most common cause of death in North America with approximately 750,000 new strokes reported annually, of which 150,000 are fatal. Approximately 75% of strokes occur in the distribution of the carotid arteries. Among those, a thrombotic etiology (carotid occlusive disease) is one of the most common causes. Recently published studies have shown that patients who underwent carotid stenting in combination with a cerebral protection device had better overall outcomes as related to stroke, death and MI as opposed to carotid endarterectomy. What is not known is whether protection devices which allow some particles (100 micron particle size or less) to pass through the filter or particles that embolize during placement or removal of the protection device, will have any delayed abnormal outcomes as determined by neuropsychological testing.

Distal cervical carotid artery pseudoaneurysm after carotid endarterectomy:Inflated?

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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. (From Am J Forensic Med Pathol 1997, 18:251; J Trauma 1994, 37:473)

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.

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.

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.
