The purpose of this study is to determine the accuracy of a new non-invasive device, the Carotid Stenotic Scan (CSS), to check for stenosis of the internal carotid artery (ICA) as compared to a carotid ultrasound study.
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 stenosis in patients at high risk for carotid endarterectomy.
The purpose of this study is to determine if carotid artery stenosis can be detected using an electronic stethoscope. This study will use a commercially available electronic stethoscope to record carotid sounds in patients with suspected carotid artery stenosis. The presence of absence of abnormal vessels will be confirmed by diagnostic ultrasound as part of normal patient care at this institution.
Background and purpose. Even if periprocedural cerebral microembolism associated with carotid endarterectomy or stenting usually does not manifest as clinically overt stroke, neuropsychological disturbances resulting from these events represent an important clinical and socioeconomic problem. Still, it remains unclear whether the use proximal protection can lower the incidence of cerebral embolism associated with the treatment of carotid stenosis. Materials and methods. This w...
The correlation between metabolic syndrome and carotid artery stenosis is well established. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the relationship between morbid obesity and carotid artery stenosis.
The aim of the study is to confirm, whether the MER® stent can be used, without limitations, for the endovascular carotid stenosis treatment in daily clinical practice. Eligible patients will undergo the procedure of the common or internal carotid artery stenting using MER® with proximal or distal neuroprotection.
The aim of this study is to determine whether optimal medical treatment can postpone carotid endarterectomy.
Patients with a moderate to severe carotid atherosclerotic plaque are at risk for stroke and this risk increases with increasing degree of stenosis. It has been shown that carotid endarterectomy in symptomatic patients with a carotid artery stenosis of 70-99% is highly beneficial. However, the beneficial effect of surgery in patients with symptomatic 30-69% stenosis is not clear yet.A clear beneficial effect of surgery in the 30-69% stenosis group might be found in a sub-group ...
Carotid revascularization can significantly reduce the risk of stroke in patients with severe carotid stenosis; however, it has been associated with cognitive decline in 25% of the older adults who undergo the procedure. Characterizing risk factors for cognitive decline following carotid interventions and individualizing treatment strategy based on those risks can minimize procedure-associated cognitive dysfunction. Neuroimaging techniques that characterize white matter integ...
Patients with symptomatic or asymptomatic carotid stenosis in whom carotid artery stenting is planned are randomised between antiplatelet therapy with ticagrelor plus aspirin or clopidogrel plus aspirin and examined with brain MRI before and after stent treatment. The proportion of patients with new ischaemic lesions on MRI after treatment is compared between the two groups.
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.
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.
Comparison of two methods for revascularization of the bifurcation of common carotid artery: carotid endarterectomy with longitudinal incision carotid endarterectomy patch angioplasty compared with new technique of carotid endarterectomy with autoarterial remodeling of bifurcation of the common carotid artery
To investigate the long-term effects of intracranial implantation of Enterprise stent system versus antiplatelet medication on neurologic deficits, daily living abilities, and carotid artery stenosis in patients with atherosclerotic ischemic stroke.
Microembolization is commonly associated with carotid artery stenting (CAS), but our understanding of subclinical microembolization is superficial. Through collaborative effects of multidisciplinary team-experts, novel approaches, and longitudinal evaluations, we hope to better understand the clinical significance and long-term cognitive effects of microemboli. This proposal may change our current clinical practice by providing a better outcome measure for carotid interventions...
Endarterectomy vs Stenting Asymptomatic Carotid stenosis patients to verify the efficacy and safety.
The trial randomise patients with asymptomatic carotid artery narrowing in whom prompt physical intervention is thought to be needed, but there there is still substantial uncertainty shared by patient and doctor about whether surgery or stenting is the more appropriate choice. The study is looking at immediate risks (within one month)and at long term benefits
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 strategies for stroke prevention in patients with atherosclerotic carotid disease.The safety and efficacy of CAS compared to CEA still remains questioned, and CEA has been considered to the first-line treatment of carotid stenosis in worldwide. The purpose of this study is to compare the practic...
To determine the effect of carotid artery stenting, on cognitive function, in patients with high grade carotid artery stenosis
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 traditional and accepted surgical approach of carotid endarterectomy (CEA) for the treatment of carotid artery stenosis to prevent recurrent strokes in those patients who have had a TIA (transient ischemic attack) or a mild stroke within the past 6 months (symptomatic) and in those patients who ha...
The purposes of this study are: 1. To confirm the PROTÉGÉ ® GPS™ and PROTÉGÉ® RX Carotid Stent Systems and SpiderFX™ Embolic Protection Device are safe and effective in the treatment of carotid artery stenosis for subjects with a high risk for complications during carotid endarterectomy. 2. To evaluate rare and unanticipated adverse events. 3. To evaluate the physician level of experience with carotid artery stenting procedures with adver...
Approximately 2000 patients eligible for elective treatment with a Carotid Stent according to hospital routine practice in centers across Europe will be enrolled in the study. The maximum number of patients enrolled at each site will be not limited. Follow-ups are scheduled at discharge, 30 days, and 1 year, as per local practice. Each patient will have follow-up contacts via hospital visit and/or telephone.
From our experience among Egyptian population in our institution, there is an increased prevalence of hidden subclinical peripheral artery disease along with carotid artery affection. Thus, increasing the risk of post-operative morbid complications.We aim to evaluate routine/ non-selective carotid and peripheral arterial screening in asymptomatic patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting in the Egyptian populationIt is a prospective, non-randomized, comparative study ...
Carotid revascularization procedures are performed for more than 87% of cases in patients with asymptomatic internal carotid stenosis (ICS), who are assumed to have a life expectancy of at least 5 years. Hence, the investigators aim to compare carotid artery stenting (CAS) with carotid endarterectomy (CEA) in terms of long-term prognostic endpoints in patients with uneventful perioperative course. CEA and CAS, as a consequence of either surgical trauma or mechanical stimuli rel...
