Risk factors for periprocedural complications in carotid artery stenting without filter protection: A serial diffusion-weighted MRI study.

Abstract:

INTRODUCTION: In high-grade stenosis, carotid artery stenting (CAS) may be chosen as an alternative to carotid surgery. Ischemic periprocedural complications may be documented best with diffusion-weighted MRI (DWMRI). In this prospective study serial DW-MRI and color-coded duplex sonography (CCDS) were used to identify carotid stenosis, which is associated with an increased risk of ischemic events due to CAS. METHODS: High resolution DW-MRI were performed in 74 out of 77 patients before and ...
