New TCAR Procedure

TCAR is a new, minimally invasive procedure that reduces the risk of stroke during stent insertion. It stands for transcarotid artery revascularization.

A potential complication of stenting and surgery in patients with carotid artery disease is a stroke developing during the procedure. TCAR is a procedure that reduces that risk.

How Does TCAR Work?

It uses a unique transcarotid neuro-protection system (NPS), which allows us to directly access the carotid artery in the neck and start high rate temporary blood flow reversal. This helps us protect the brain from stroke while delivering and implanting the stent.

We perform the TCAR procedure through a small incision just above the clavicle. This is a much smaller incision than the typical carotid endarterectomy (CEA) incision. We then place a tube into the carotid artery and connect it to the NPS that directs blood flow away from the brain.
