The article presents the main current trends of endovascular carotid surgery. The experi-ence of using the last generation carotid stents - two-layer self-expanding stents of 2 types - CGuard and Casper Rx. Demonstrated convincing results in the immediate and early post-operative period, including using optical coherence tomography.
