The article features the Mo.Ma system, a device that offers brain protection from embolization during a carotid artery stenting procedure. According to John Laird, who demonstrated the device at the Vascular Interventional Advances meeting held in Las Vegas, Nevada in September 2008, the device is one of only two proximal protection systems that are under investigation in the U.S. and around the world. It reports on the U.S. operation of Italy-based percutaneous transluminal angioplasty balloon manufacturer Invatec.
