Angioplasty and Stenting
Carotid angioplasty and stenting
When medical therapies are insufficient to effectively manage carotid stenosis, Riverside endovascular surgeons can provide patients with leading-edge carotid angioplasty and stenting treatments that are directly analogous to procedures used to remove the blockage of blood flow to the heart.
Intracranial angioplasty and stenting
In addition to the internal carotid artery, typical areas for intracranial stenosis include the middle cerebral artery, the vertebral artery and the basilar artery. This minimally invasive treatment does not have an alternative surgical procedure. For that reason, it is reserved for patients who are having symptoms while already on medical therapy or other risk factor modification.
