LUJAN, Ricardo Augusto Carvalho et al. Endovascular treatment of carotid artery restenosis: short term results. J. vasc. bras. [online]. 2011, vol.10, n.1, pp.3-8. ISSN 1677-5449.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1677-54492011000100002.

CONTEXT: The surgical treatment of carotid artery restenosis presents a high risk of nerve injury. On the contrary, endovascular treatment for extracranial carotid artery obstructive disease has become more feasible. Gradually, lower rates of surgical risk have been reported, which makes the treatment a good option in special situations. It may be considered as the standard treatment for carotid artery restenosis. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the applicability, safety, and efficacy of the angioplasty with the use of a stent (Carotid Artery Stenting - CAS) for the treatment of carotid artery restenosis, in the intraoperative and early (<30 days) postoperative period. METHODS: Retrospective analysis of patients with carotid artery restenosis who have undergone stenting angioplasty from March 2000 to June 2004. RESULTS: Nineteen patients with carotid artery restenosis were analyzed. Fourteen (74%) patients were male, with a mean age of 74 years. Fifteen (79%) patients were asymptomatic, with stenosis >80%, whereas 4 (21%) were symptomatic with stenosis >70%. In only one patient a cerebral protection system was not used. Technical success was achieved in all cases. There was no death or stroke in the intraoperative or the early postoperative period (30 days). CONCLUSION: Endovascular treatment of carotid artery restenosis seems to be a feasible and safe approach in the short term
