About this Book
Carotid Angioplasty and Stenting (CAS) is a new approach to treat a carotid stenosis. This new book provides interventional cardiologists, both as beginners or fully experienced, with a reference on all aspects of angioplasty and stenting of the carotid and supra-aortic trunks.
Focusing on both the entire range of angioplasty and stenting treatment options for the surgeon treating patients on the operating table, and the range of radiological techniques used for the cardiologist to diagnose carotid artery stenosis (CAS) and associated conditions, this important book describes the best indications, the different techniques, the results, and also the limitations of CAS based on randomized studies and particularly the last published data (CREST study).
Suitable for both novice and experienced interventionalists, it also addresses diagnosis of a carotid stenosis and complications from CAS and how to manage them.
