Abstract

Purpose: To assess primary success and safety of percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) and/or stenting of ostial/proximal common carotid artery lesions (pCCA) and to compare its 30-day stroke/mortality level with the literature data for surgical options. Methods: A total of 147 patients (153 stenoses, 6 recurrent) (71 female; 121 left) with significant diameter stenosis (>70% in symptomatic, n = 46; >85% in asymptomatic, n = 101 patients) of pCCA treated between 1994 and 2006 were retrospectively reviewed. With the exception of one, all procedures were performed using a transfemoral approach. A stent was implanted in 108 (70.5%) of cases. Stents were not available in the early years of our experience, but gradually became a routine practice. Embolic protection devices were used in 16 cases. Follow-up included neurological examination, carotid duplex scan, and office/telephone interview. Results: Primary technical success was 98.7% (151/153 stenoses). There were no deaths.
