Simultaneous Bilateral Carotid Stenting for Restenosis After Endarterectomy

Cathet Cardiovasc Diagn. 1998 Sep;45(1):11-5. doi: 10.1002/(sici)1097-0304(199809)45:1<11::aid-ccd3>3.0.co;2-9.

Abstract

Carotid stenting may offer an alternative to surgery for recurrent carotid artery stenosis following endarterectomy. Five patients successfully underwent percutaneous simultaneous bilateral carotid artery stenting for restenosis after endarterectomy, without complications. Six months of clinical and imaging follow-up showed preserved patency of all vessels treated, with no neurologic events in any of the patients.
