Thromboembolism is a major risk of carotid angioplasty and stenting (CAS). Although the incidence of distal embolism has been documented by MRI and TCD studies, the mechanisms and management of this complication are rarely reported. Here we describe four patients with periprocedural embolic events to demonstrate the mechanisms of thromboembolism in CAS. Different remedies were applied to these patients according to the underlying mechanisms of thromboembolism and good clinical outcomes were achieved.
