Instructional Videos

Throughout the videos below you’ll get an overview of what to expect going into a TCAR case through both live demonstrations and procedural animation. You’ll hear from physicians who have experience with the TCAR® system discuss their learning curve, recent data, comparisons of TCAR to carotid endarterectomy and transfemoral carotid artery stenting. They also share TCAR best practices, explain some of the benefits realized from a less invasive option for carotid intervention discuss the future of carotid intervention.

Physician Perspectives 

Dr. Ramaiah, Dr. O’Connor and Dr. Mukherjee discuss TCAR compared with CEA and TF-CAS, treating higher risk patients, recent data on the procedure, extending the procedure to moderate risk and asymptomatic patients, and more.
Dr. Stout, Dr. Broussard and Dr. Cunningham discuss adoption of the TCAR procedure, learning curve, neurologist buy-in, patient satisfaction, recent data presentations, predictions for future patient eligibility and more.
Dr. Stoner, Dr. Melton and Dr. Landis talk about a wide range of topics, such as the reproducibility of the procedure, the impact of micro-embolism on the brain, the use of local anesthesia for faster patient recovery and the future of this therapy.

Patient Care

By leveraging telehealth, doctors and patients can maintain the same level of communication while minimizing in person contact during TCAR consultations. Dr. Scott Berman highlights the benefits of these visits through their ability to provide virtual patient care.

Dr. Berman demonstrates how the TCAR toolkit allows doctors to provide visual elements during telehealth consultations, including animations of the TCAR procedure, comparisons between TCAR and CEA, and pamphlets for procedure preparation.
