Carotid stenting has become a commonly used procedure for the treatment of carotid artery stenosis. Though equipment and techniques have improved tremendously over the recent 3 decades, complications do occur. It is important for carotid operators to be familiar with potential complications and adverse events. In this article complications and adverse events of carotid stenting including those that are related to the vascular access site, vessel spasm, dissection, perforation, thrombotic occlusion and hemodynamic instability and arrhythmias are reviewed. In addition, management strategies are discussed.
