Elevating Vascular Care: Carotid Artery Stenting at ILS Hospitals

At ILS Hospitals, we stand at the forefront of vascular interventions, offering state-of-the-art procedures like carotid artery stenting. This advanced technique plays a pivotal role in the management of carotid artery disease, ensuring optimal outcomes for patients. Let’s delve into the significance and process of carotid artery stenting at ILS Hospitals.

Understanding Carotid Artery Stenting:

What Is Carotid Artery Stenting? Carotid artery stenting is a minimally invasive procedure designed to treat carotid artery disease, a condition characterized by the narrowing or blockage of the carotid arteries. These arteries, located on either side of the neck, supply oxygenated blood to the brain. Stenting involves the placement of a small mesh tube, known as a stent, to widen the narrowed portion of the carotid artery, restoring normal blood flow.

  • Diagnostic Significance: Carotid artery stenting serves several diagnostic and therapeutic purposes, including:
  • Preventing Stroke: By addressing the narrowing of the carotid arteries, stenting helps reduce the risk of stroke, particularly in individuals with a history of transient ischemic attacks (TIAs) or mini-strokes.
  • Restoring Blood Flow: The stent creates a scaffold within the artery, preventing it from collapsing and maintaining an open pathway for blood flow to the brain.
  • Minimally Invasive Approach: Carotid artery stenting is performed through small incisions, minimizing trauma to surrounding tissues and resulting in faster recovery times compared to open surgery.

The Carotid Artery Stenting Process:

  • Pre-Procedural Assessment: Before the stenting procedure, diagnostic imaging, such as carotid ultrasound or angiography, is performed to precisely identify the location and severity of the blockage.
  • Catheterization: A catheter is guided through the blood vessels, typically from the femoral artery in the groin, to reach the site of the carotid artery blockage.
  • Stent Placement: A stent, a small mesh tube, is threaded through the catheter and positioned at the narrowed segment of the carotid artery. The stent is then expanded, pushing against the arterial walls and creating a stable channel for blood flow.
  • Post-Stenting Imaging: Follow-up imaging studies, such as angiography, may be conducted to ensure the proper placement and expansion of the stent.
  • Monitoring and Recovery: Patients are closely monitored post-procedure, and recovery times are typically shorter compared to traditional open surgery.
