Abstract

BACKGROUND: Carotid artery stenting (CAS) is an established treatment for carotid artery stenosis, typically in a semielective or elective setting. The growth of mechanical thrombectomy for acute stroke has led to an increased use of emergent carotid artery stenting (eCAS). This single-center retrospective case series evaluates the safety and efficacy of eCAS using a dual-layer micromesh nitinol stent to treat carotid artery stenosis in the acute stroke setting. METHODS: Ethics approval was granted by the institutional review board. Clinical data of all patients who underwent CAS using the Casper dual-layer micromesh nitinol stent system (MicroVention, Terumo, Tustin, California, USA) at a t..
