The purpose of this study is to get outcomes data for the Adapt Monorail Carotid System used in conjunction with the FilterWire Embolic protection system for treatment of patients that suffer from carotid artery stenosis and that cannot have surgery due to high risk factors.
According to the World Health Organization, 15 million people suffer stroke each year. Of these, 5 million die and another 5 million are permanently disabled. Predominant mechanism responsible for stroke is embolism from proximal rupture of atherosclerotic plaque and thrombus. 25-30% of stroke deaths related to the carotid stenosis. The primary therapy for carotid occlusive disease is the surgical removal of this atherosclerotic plaque from inside the artery. Another treatment option for subjects with significant surgical risk factors has been found: the carotid artery stenting is a non-surgical procedure which unblocks narrowing of the carotid artery lumen by inserting a small metal tube (stent) to keep the plaque against the wall of the artery to improve blood flow.

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...
Cerebrovascular disease is a leading cause of death and the leading cause of serious long-term disability. Carotid artery stenting (CAS) and carotid endarterectomy (CEA) are alternative st...
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.
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.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
