The Roadsaver® carotid artery stent (Terumo Corp., Tokyo, Japan) has been introduced into clinical practice to increase plaque coverage during carotid artery stenting (CAS) thanks to its dual-layer design.

In addition, although some concern has been raised about the presence of a larger quantity of foreign material (double mesh) inside the carotid artery, no data are available about the Roadsaver stent restenosis rate.
