About TCAR with the ENROUTE Transcarotid Neuroprotection and Stent
TCAR (TransCarotid Artery Revascularization) is a clinically proven
procedure combining surgical principles of neuroprotection with
minimally invasive endovascular techniques to treat blockages in the
carotid artery at risk of causing a stroke. The ENROUTE Transcarotid
Stent is intended to be used in conjunction with the ENROUTE
Transcarotid Neuroprotection System (NPS) during the TCAR procedure. The
ENROUTE Transcarotid NPS is a first in class device used to directly
access the common carotid artery and initiate high rate temporary blood
flow reversal to protect the brain from stroke while delivering and
implanting the ENROUTE Transcarotid Stent.
