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.
