Abstract

Introduction: We compared the incidence of intraprocedural bradycardia and hypotension during carotid artery stenting in patients with primary carotid artery stenosis and those with prior ipsilateral carotid endarterectomy. Methods: A total of 213 carotid stenting procedures were performed in our institution in a 4-year period. The mean degree of stenosis was 78% (range 60-99%). Of these 213 procedures, 43 were performed for carotid restenosis, 9 after stenting and 34 after endarterectomy, and 170 for primary stenosis. Atropine was selectively administrated if patients suffered bradycardia (a decrease in heart rate to
