Abstract: Although some early reports describe angiographic as well as clinical success for balloon angioplasty alone in the treatment of carotid occlusive disease, most interventionists prefer stent-assisted balloon angioplasty because of the purported advantages, such as avoiding plaque dislodgement, intimal dissection, elastic vessel recoil and late restenosis. Mainly because of the different characteristics of each carotid artery segment, different types of stents are preferred. A carotid artery lesion located in the intrathoracic brachiocephalic trunc or common carotid artery would need a different stent to a lesion at the carotid bifurcation or a lesion of an intracerebral branch of the internal carotid artery.
