by Michel Henry (Editor), Takao Ohki (Editor), Antonio Polydorou (Editor), Kyriakos Strigaris (Editor), Dimitrios Kiskinis (Editor)
Although carotid endarectomy (CEA) has long been considered the gold standard technique, recent studies report that short- and long-term results with carotid angioplasty and stenting(CAS) are comparable to those with CEA in a significant number of cases. Covering clinical assessment, techniques and devices, medical treatment, and more, Angioplasty and Stenting of the Carotid and Supra-Aortic Trunks reviews the state of the art in CAS.
The editors have drawn together a panel of experts to provide an up-to-date snapshot that summarizes current, relevant knowledge about endovascular interventional therapy for carotid disease. They present a broad overview of approaches and techniques, a discussion of protection devices and potential pitfalls, and coverage of methods to reduce potential complications, select and enlarge indications, and improve short- and long-term results. A report from the leading edge of medical science, this resource supplies the cutting-edge information you need to determine when it is appropriate to use CAS.
