Company Description The new Silk Road procedure draws upon proven surgical techniques to protect the brain from stroke risk during carotid artery stenting. It allows physicians to deliver a stent directly from the neck, which is intended to avoid complications associated with starting from the femoral artery in the groin, which is typically used in carotid artery stenting procedures. To provide protection for the patient’s brain during the entire procedure, the Silk Road system temporarily reverses blood flow in order to move any debris away from the brain.
