Proximal Protection Devices, either flow-reversal or flow-arrest demonstrate excellent results of acute- and short-term outcomes in patients undergoing carotid stenting. Intolerance rates of both devices varies from low (1.8%) to relatively significant one (up to 19.0%), according to the definition used in the studies. Interestingly, when accounting only the cases of intolerance leading to protection device removal and possible substitution, the intolerance rate falls to a very low range (0.4% to 1.6%). Given these low rates of intolerance and the excellent clinical results, proximal protection devices must be considered as a first line embolic protection, especially in high-risk patients undergoing carotid stenting. © 2012 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
