Filter protection devices for carotid artery stenting

Abstract

We attempted carotid artery stent implantation using protective filter devices in 128 lesions to determine their safety and feasibility for preventing cerebral complications. Neurologic complications occurred in 1.7% of the patients during 30-day follow-up; no vascular access complications occurred. The major adverse cardiac event rate at 30 days was 1.7%. Our results suggest that protective filter devices are feasible and safe for reducing neurologic events during carotid artery stent implantation.
