Carotid artery Stenting (CAS) is a non surgical catheter based procedure that is performed, in order to prevent stroke by opening the narrowed carotid arteries.
The procedure seems to be quite easy and it has gained popularity for the fact that it is less invasive. However, though it is less invasive, in some cases it could be even riskier than the traditional surgery.
