Evaluation of the self-expanding effect of carotid stents in the early postoperative period

CONCLUSION: We think that keeping the lumen patency limited to 30% residual stenosis after CAS procedure by applying minimal post-stenting balloon dilatation and leaving the remaining lumen expansion to the self-expanding feature of the Wallstent might be a sensible approach in order to avoid embolic events and excessive carotid sinus reactions (CSR).PMID:36794658 | DOI:10.1177/17085381231158494
