Abstract

Herein, we describe a new carotid stenting approach for four patients with moderate-to-severe chronic renal insufficiency, who have a glomerular filtration rate (GFR) between 15 and 59 mL/min/1.73 m(2), using a minimum dose of contrast medium (12 mL at a 50% dilution) and SmartMask (TM) technology as an alternative to carotid endarterectomy.
