The standard route for carotid artery stenting (CAS) is the femoral one, leaving the brachial access as a secondary option. Various anatomic specifications, or occlusions of the routing arteries, make carotid stenting impossible. Percutaneous cervical puncture of the common carotid artery, is a method which can solve access problems. We are presenting the experience from 191 CAS procedures through cervical puncturing and closure of the puncture site in order to prove its safety and efficacy.
