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

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 diffusi...
The primary objective of this study is to compare the safety and effectiveness of the Cordis Nitinol Carotid Stent and Delivery Systems (5.5 F and 7 F) with the ANGIOGUARD XP distal prote...
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 ...
Carotid artery stenting (CAS) with proximal occlusion effectively prevent distal cerebral embolism by flow arrest at internal carotid artery (ICA); however, the method can expose antegrade flow at ICA...
To compare feasibility, 12-month outcome, and periprocedural and postprocedural risks between carotid artery stent (CAS) placement and carotid endarterectomy (CEA) performed within 1 week after transi...
Endovascular treatment options for internal carotid artery (ICA) dissection with tandem intracranial occlusion are evolving. We report 2 cases of stent reconstruction of carotid loop dissections.
Although in-stent protrusion is a potential risk factor of thromboembolism following carotid artery stenting, the correlation between in-stent protrusion and postoperative ipsilateral stroke has not b...
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.
