Echocardiography and Noninvasive Vascular Testing Lecture Series: Peri-operating Imaging for Carotid Artery Stents

December 15, 2022

The effectiveness of carotid endarterectomy (CEA) in the prevention of stroke in symptomatic and asymptomatic patients with carotid stenosis has been demonstrated by several randomized studies. Carotid artery stenting (CAS) is an alternative technique that gives favorable results when associated with the use of brain protection devices (BPD). This educational activity will provide a review of peri-operative imaging protocols and findings for better patient selection and improving outcomes.

Target Audience

Cardiologists, vascular surgeons, interventional radiologists, echocardiography and noninvasive vascular testing specialists, nurses, sonographers, pharmacists, respiratory therapists.
