St. Petersburg, FL -- (March 11, 2010) – Northside Hospital now offers carotid artery stenting (CAS) to our community through its Neuroscience Institute. CAS is performed as a minimally invasive alternative to the surgical removal of plaque in the walls of the carotid artery (carotid endarterectomy). This procedure can restore blood flow to the brain and prevent stroke. Carotid stenting is particularly important for patients with other serious conditions that may prevent them from having more traditional surgery.
