Carotid artery stenting in patients with symptomatic carotid stenosis: A single-center series.

Abstract : OBJECTIVES: Carotid angioplasty with stenting (CAS) in patients with carotid stenosis (CS) has become more restricted in France especially since the disclosure of such studies as EVA-3S and Stent-supported percutaneous angioplasty of the carotid artery versus endarterectomy (SPACE). This report is of a series of CS cases contraindicated for endarterectomy that underwent CAS at a French center of interventional neuroradiology. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Fifty-five patients with symptomatic CS more than 60% consecutively submitted to CAS between September 2008 and February 2011. The primary endpoint was either death or stroke within 30days of the procedure; a secondary goal was to identify any possible factors that might have influenced the success and outcome of the intervention. RESULTS: The overall periprocedural stroke/death rate at 30days was 5.4% (three out of 55patients), with three non-disabling strokes and no deaths. Twenty-seven patients (49.1%) were treated with a cerebral protection device (CPD). Stent placement was achieved in all cases. Open- and closed-cell stents were implanted in 40 (72.7%) and 15procedures (27.3%), respectively. Neither the use of a CPD, the carotid stent cell design nor any anatomical or technical factors were associated with a lower risk of stroke or death within 30days of CAS. CONCLUSION: CAS in symptomatic patients with CS contraindicated for endarterectomy in this selected French series proved feasible and safe, with acceptable levels of morbidity. Use of a CPD, type of stent (open- or closed-cell), and anatomical and technical factors had no influence on the success of the procedure or the outcome within 30days of the operation.
