Although carotid percutaneous intervention using angioplasty alone was first pioneered in the late 1970s and early 1980s by Mathias and colleagues,1,2 the field was launched with the advent of stents3-5 which provided a more secure initial result, and probably more robust long-term patency rates. Subsequent publications of single-center experiences6 demonstrated enough of a safety and efficacy ‘signal’ with off-the-shelf equipment, which by today’s standards are considered primitive, to continue exploring this alternative.
