July 6, 2021 GMT

SUNNYVALE, Calif., July 06, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Silk Road Medical, Inc. (Nasdaq: SILK), a company focused on reducing the risk of stroke and its devastating impact, today announced that key data regarding standard risk patients undergoing treatment for atherosclerotic carotid disease, including patients undergoing carotid endarterectomy (CEA) and transcarotid artery revascularization (TCAR), will be presented at the upcoming Society for Vascular Surgery 2021 Vascular Annual Meeting (VAM), August 18 –21 at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, California.

The presentation: Expansion of Transcarotid Artery Revascularization to Standard Risk Patients for Treatment of Carotid Artery Stenosis, will be shared by Dr. Patric Liang of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center during Plenary Session 2 on Wednesday, August 18, at 10:09 a.m. PDT. Retrospective data for symptomatic and asymptomatic standard risk patients undergoing CEA and TCAR for atherosclerotic carotid disease was reviewed to show TCAR and CEA have equivalent risk of perioperative stroke, death, or MI and ipsilateral stroke through 1 year. Nearly 20,000 patients were included (14,979 CEA and 4,993 TCAR) from the VQI CEA and carotid artery stent (CAS) registries over a 4-year time period (August 2016 to August 2020).

About TCAR with the ENROUTE Transcarotid Neuroprotection and Stent System
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 patients at high risk for complications from CEA, 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.
