Immunohistochemical Analysis of Debris Captured by Filter-Type Distal Embolic Protection Devices for Carotid Artery Stenting

Little is known about the micro-debris captured in filter-type distal embolic protection devices (EPD) used for carotid stenting (CAS). This study aimed to determine the histological and immunohistochemical characteristics of such debris by using a new liquid-based cytology (LBC) technique.
