Our aim was to determine (1) periprocedural and 30-day clinical safety and efficacy of the CGuard MicroNet-covered embolic prevention carotid stent system (MN-EPS) in routine use for unselected carotid stenosis (CS) patients undergoing CAS, as well as (2) feasibility of MN-EPS post-dilatation optimisation to minimise residual stenosis after CAS.

We systematically compared and appraised contemporary guidelines on management of asymptomatic and symptomatic carotid artery stenosis.

A meta-analysis of recently published randomised controlled trials (RCTs) was performed to evaluate the safety of carotid artery stenting (CAS) versus carotid endarterectomy (CEA) for asymptomatic carotid stenosis with average risk.

The authors herein describe a case of orbital and ocular ischemic syndrome with blindness after cosmetic hyaluronic acid filler injection. Orbital function, but not visual function, returned after treatment with orbital hyaluronidase and corticosteroids.

Concepts: Function, Ocular ischemic syndrome


Optimal management of patients with stroke due to symptomatic carotid artery disease coexistent with bacterial endocarditis is still not well established. We report the case of a patient who presented with multifocal left middle cerebral artery stroke in the setting ofEnterococcus faecalisendocarditis and was found to have near-occlusive ipsilateral carotid artery stenosis in stroke workup. Carotid artery endarterectomy was performed, and atheroma material demonstrated complicated plaque with cultures positive forE. faecalisThis report demonstrates that patients with cardioembolic disorders such as bacterial endocarditis with vegetations who present with stroke may benefit from evaluation for extracranial vessel stenosis. Also, additional consideration should be given to the possibility of infected atheroma in patients with symptomatic carotid stenosis with recent or active endocarditis or bacteraemia.

The effects and safety of transradial access for stenting of carotid artery stenosis in patients with bovine-type and type III aortic arch are currently unknown and are the purpose of this study.

To report a case of low tension neovascular glaucoma in ocular ischemic syndrome.

Cerebral ischemic strokes due to extra-/intracranial tandem occlusions (TO) of the anterior circulation are responsible for causing mechanical thrombectomy (MT). The impact of concomitant contralateral carotid stenosis (CCS) upon outcome remains unclear in this stroke subtype.

To evaluate the effects of carotid artery angioplasty and stenting (CAAS) on patients who were diagnosed with ocular ischemic syndrome (OIS).
