Stents, Vascular, Carotid

Definition : Vascular stents designed for deployment into the carotid arteries to provide support and/or to maintain patency within the artery. These stents typically consist of a metallic, very flexible meshlike tube either of uniform section or tapered. Carotid vascular stents are designed to form a scaffold that holds the arteries open, preventing restenosis caused by vessel recoil and/or remodeling.
