Peri-procedural Risk with Urgent Carotid Artery Stenting: A Population based Swedvasc Study.
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
Current European Society for Vascular Surgery guidelines recommend that patients with a symptomatic carotid stenosis should be operated on within 14 days of onset of symptoms. Recent reports indicate that carotid endarterectomy (CEA) within 2 days of a neurological event may be associated with a higher peri-procedural risk of stroke. Whether urgent carotid artery stenting (CAS) carries a similar high risk is unclear. The aim of this study was to analyze if urgent CAS increases the peri-procedural risks.
