Carotid Artery Stenting: The Basics (Contemporary Cardiology)by Jacqueline Saw.
Synopses & Reviews
Over the past three decades, carotid artery stenting has evolved to become a promising and viable alternative to carotid endarterectomy, especially for patients deemed to have high surgical risks. In Carotid Artery Stenting: The Basics, Jacqueline Saw and a panel of international experts on carotid artery stenting discuss in depth the details of all contemporary aspects of carotid stenting, while reviewing supporting studies, guidelines, technical perspectives, and peri-procedural management. This textbook serves as a learning resource on the multifaceted management of patients with carotid artery stenosis, with the key focus on extracranial carotid artery stenting. Additional sections detail the specifics of setting up and maintaining a laboratory and discuss the preparation of the carotid artery stenting procedure from both the patient and operator's perspective. Authoritative and highly practical, Carotid Artery Stenting: The Basics is an accessible guide and valuable resource for today's cardiologists, radiologists, and vascular surgeons.
Book News Annotation:
Despite considerable advances in carotid artery stenting (CAS) for carotid artery stenosis to prevent the recurrence of strokes and other vascular events, there are continuing challenges with this procedure for some patients. In a textbook intended to complement practitioners' hands-on experience, Saw (U. of British Columbia, Canada) introduces 15 well-illustrated chapters that treat carotid artery stenosis from its prevalence and pre-operative assessment to noninvasive imaging modalities, patient and operator preparation for CAS, major research studies, and follow-up. In the editor's contribution, she discusses the evidence-based advantages of CAS over CEA (cardiac endartectomy) for high surgical-risk patients. The volume includes recommendations for oral therapies; summary tables of indications for procedures, and high-risk registries; and a sample post-procedure monitoring order.

The content of this proposed handbook will primarily address the treatment of extracranial carotid artery stenosis with carotid stenting, but will also cover neuron-rescue of intracranial embolization. We will describe the necessary laboratory set-up, background and carotid stenting indications, imaging, approaches, techniques, equipment, and complications. This handbook is intended to be a practical guide to coach interventionalists to set-up their laboratory and become competent operators of carotid stenting.
In this book, Jacqueline Saw and international experts on carotid artery stenting discuss in depth the details of all contemporary aspects of carotid stenting. They review supporting studies, guidelines, technical perspectives, and peri-procedural management.
