Abstract

The preoperative plaque diagnosis and evaluation of plaque protrusion (PP) into the stent lumen after stent placement or postdilatation are very important for the prevention of ischemic complications in carotid artery stenting (CAS). The usefulness of intravascular ultrasound (IVUS), which makes these evaluations during CAS possible, is discussed.
