Multiple Retinal Emboli Following a New Carotid Stenting Procedure

By Richard J. Hesse, Anthony J. Culotta, Stephen R. Ramee and Zola N'Dandu

Especially dense plaques in the carotid artery can shatter into dust-like particles that may be fine enough to penetrate the filter of the new device, thus posing the danger of retinal perfusion
