One of the most common peripheral vascular procedures performed in the US is carotid endarterectomy.
One of the important challenges of carotid endarterectomy is to maintain good cerebral blood flow while reducing the risk of emboli from plaque ulcerations or vessel trauma. LeMaitre Vascular offers a solution to this challenge with the Pruitt-Inahara® and Inahara-Pruitt® Carotid Shunts. An instructional video is available to familiarize surgeons with these shunts and their optimal use.
This thirteen minute video illustrates carotid endarterectomy using the Pruitt-Inahara carotid shunt with live operating room scenes, animation, and illustrations.
