Video of a carotid stent procedure live panel discussion. Physicians narrated the procedure and answered viewer questions as taped highlights were shown. Carotid artery stenting is minimally invasive and replaces open surgery to clean out a blocked artery and has proven to be superior to open surgery in all patients, including high-risk patients. The goal of a carotid stent is to reduce the risk of stroke and improve blood flow to the brain. This is a replay of a live webcast originally aired on 9/28/06.
