To collect clinical outcome and device performance data on the FDA 510(k)-cleared Emboshield® BareWire™ Rapid Exchange Embolic Protection System and FDA-approved Xact® Rapid Exchange Carotid Stent System when used under commercial use conditions by a broad group of physicians entering the study with differing carotid artery stenting experiences.
This is a multi-center, observational, single arm, post-approval study enrolling the following study population:
- Subjects with neurological symptoms and >= 50% stenosis of the common or internal carotid artery by ultrasound or angiogram (visual estimate), or
- Subjects without neurological symptoms and >= 80% stenosis of the common or internal carotid artery by ultrasound or angiogram (visual estimate)
- The endpoint for the 1500 subjects enrolled will be a 30-day composite of death, stroke and myocardial infarction (MI).
- For the 500 subjects with 12 month follow-up, the endpoint will be a composite of stroke, death and MI at 30 days and ipsilateral stroke at 12 months (31-365 days).
Allocation: Non-Randomized, Control: Uncontrolled, Endpoint Classification: Safety Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label

Carotid artery stenting with filter (interventional)

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 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 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...
Results from studies investigating the effect of contralateral carotid artery occlusion (CCO) in patients with carotid artery stenosis undergoing carotid artery endarterectomy (CEA) or carotid artery ...
We analyzed the results of internal carotid artery (ICA) stenosis treatment at our institution according to the treatment modality-carotid endarterectomy (CEA) vs. carotid artery stenting (CAS).
Carotid endarterectomy (CEA) and carotid artery stenting (CAS) are the 2 current standard treatments for carotid artery stenosis. There is still no well-defined consensus with regard to their superior...
We hypothesized the inflammatory markers (IM) could be independent predictors of carotid stenosis progression (CSP) after carotid artery stenting (CAS).
A meta-analysis found that for internal carotid artery stenosis procedures in elderly patient, the risk of perioperative stroke is significantly higher for carotid artery stenting (CAS) than for carot...
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.
A stent is a small mesh tube that's used to treat narrow or weak arteries. Arteries are blood vessels that carry blood away from your heart to other parts of your body. A stent is placed in an artery as part of a procedure called angioplasty. &...
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
