Carotid stenting is a common procedure for revascularization of carotid artery stenosis. In this study, we evaluated the role of carotid ultrasound post carotid stenting. In a retrospective analysis, we identified 45 patients who received post-stent ultrasound. On routine follow-up we measured a range for peak systolic velocity of 33-150 cm/s and end diastolic velocity 11-52 cm/s. We also identified two cases, where immediate post-stent ultrasound provided critical data that required further intervention, and potentially avoided serious complications.
