Boston Scientific Carotid WALLSTENT® Found Safe in Study of High Surgical Risk Patients in Routine Clinical Practice
Date:11/8/2011

utes of Health (NIH) stroke scale assessments.

"Results from this post-approval study show low rates of stroke, death, and MI, demonstrating that the Carotid WALLSTENT and FilterWire EZ can be used in carotid stenting procedures as a safe alternative to surgery in high-risk patients," said Dr. Hopkins.  "In my clinical practice, I have found that the user-friendly design of this stenting system contributes to successful outcomes in patients with carotid artery stenosis at increased risk for surgery."

The Carotid WALLSTENT Monorail Endoprosthesis is a self-expanding stent with a closed-cell design to provide increased scaffolding for improved lesion coverage and a smooth inner lumen.  It features a highly flexible, low-profile stent delivery system designed to provide exceptional tracking through difficult anatomy.  The FilterWire EZ Embolic Protection System is designed to capture plaque debris that may be released during a procedure, preventing it from traveling to the brain, where it could cause a stroke.  The Carotid WALLSTENT Monorail Endoprosthesis is the leading carotid stent in Europe and is available in all major markets worldwide."As public discussion continues regarding carotid stenosis therapy, the CABANA study demonstrates our commitment to providing physicians with safe and effective CAS treatment options supported by strong clinical evidence," said Jeff Mirviss, President of Boston Scientific's Peripheral Interventions business.  "The Carotid WALLSTENT and FilterWire EZ System offer a less-invasive alternative for treating carotid artery disease and can help reduce the risk of stroke, which can have devastating consequences on patients and their families."

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the Carotid WALLSTENT in 2008.  The FilterWire EZ Embolic Protection System received FDA clearance for use in carotid artery stenting procedures in 2006.
