Carotid artery stenting has become an accepted treatment for carotid artery disease and is often the preferred treatment in high-risk patients or those who may present a surgical challenge. Carotid artery stents are routinely followed with duplex ultrasound using surveillance protocols similar to those for patients with carotid endarterectomy surgery. While there are common components with carotid stent and endarterectomy ultrasound evaluations, there are additional areas that require close examination.

At the completion of this course the participant will be able to:
• Describe the essential elements of a carotid stent ultrasound examination
• List duplex ultrasound criteria for carotid stents
• Identify commonly encountered pathology associated with carotid stents
