SAPPHIRE WW Registry- Stenting and Angioplasty with protection in patients at high-risk for endarterectomy
This is a registry study for patients with carotid artery blockages who are considered to be high risk surgical patients. This study is designed to assess the outcomes of stenting with distal protection (a tiny filter that captures debris that may be released during the procedure which may help reduce the chance of stroke) in the treatment of obstructive (blocked) carotid artery disease. The study involves two short neurological assessments which are conducted prior to the stent procedure, approximately 24 hours after the procedure, and again during a 30 day visit. Additionally, there is a brief patient questionnaire to be completed prior to the procedure and once more at the 30 day visit. The information that is obtained during this study may be used medically and scientifically to help others with carotid artery disease.
