Background and aims: Carotid artery stenting (CAS) is an accepted treatment modality for carotid artery disease. However, CAS is associated with periprocedural embolic events, and the effect of balloon post-dilatation has not been sufficiently investigated in large studies. We assessed the effect of post-dilatation on periprocedural outcomes during CAS.
