TCAR vs. TF-CAS

The objective of this study was to compare outcomes associated with Transcarotid Artery Revascularization and transfemoral carotid artery stenting using data from the VQI-TSP.

“Among patients undergoing treatment for carotid stenosis, transcarotid artery revascularization, compared with transfemoral carotid artery stenting, was significantly associated with a lower risk of stroke or death.”
JAMA. 2019 Dec 17;322(23):2313-2322

TCAR Vs. TF-CAS Results*

The investigators found a significant decrease in stroke and death for patients who underwent TCAR as well as procedural efficiencies such as less radiation and less contrast. The investigators also found a significant decrease in stroke or death at one year.
