In a headline presentation, Dr. Mahmoud Malas of the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine shared updated results for the ongoing TransCarotid Artery Revascularization (TCAR) Surveillance Project contemporaneously comparing TCAR to the surgical standard of care, carotid endarterectomy (CEA).
The TCAR Surveillance Project, a key initiative of the Society for Vascular Surgery’s Vascular Quality Initiative (VQI), is an open-ended registry intended to compare real-world patient outcomes between TCAR and CEA.
Key data from the SVS TCAR Surveillance Project and ROADSTER-2 study will be presented at the upcoming Society for Vascular Surgery 2019 Vascular Annual Meeting (VAM), June 12-15 at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland.

“TCAR is the next step,” said Dr. Peter Schneider, Chief of Vascular Therapy at Hawaii Permanente Medical Group and Kaiser Foundation Hospital Honolulu, and National Co-Principal Investigator of the ROADSTER 2 post-market study. “Carotid endarterectomy has been perfected over 50 years, but no matter how good it gets, it has certain inherent challenges that aren’t ever going to go away. My attitude now has really flip-flopped from that of tried and true surgery to what I think is the future of carotid artery repair.”
