How to perform Carotid Artery Stenting. Perugia way to do it

Carotid artery stenting is a delicate surgery being sometimes as fast as insidious.

We strongly believe that in order to minimize complications rate an almost obsessive attention to details in each procedural moment is essential.

In this video we report probably the most standardized procedure performed at our institution with 6 operators currently doing each passage exactly the same way.

Of course we don’t claim to show the way it should be done, but just the way we learned to do it after more than 3000 performed cases

Carotid artery stenting with the Mo.Ma™ Ultra proximal cerebral protection device

This is a recorded case presenting all the important steps of carotid artery stenting (CAS). These steps include the use of transbrachial access, the advancement of the sheath in the common carotid artery, the placement of the Mo.Ma cerebral protection device to remove all sizes of debris and the final procedure of carotid artery stenting. Finally, the interventionalists demonstrate all relevant aspects of intraoperative monitoring by transcranial doppler.
