Distal embolic filters are a type of embolic protection device (EPD) which is generally used for the embolic protection. Embolic stroke is one of the principal risks in the carotid artery stenting (CAS). The distal embolic filters are composed of a tightly wrapped filter which is attached to a guidewire and sheathed within a delivery catheter for the placement of distal to the target lesion. Distal embolic filters are able to trap the debris that embolize. Distal embolic filters are intended to protect the carotid artery stenting patient. Distal embolic filters reduce the plaque debris from reaching the distal bed and significantly prevents the adverse clinical events. Across the globe, distal embolic filters are widely adopted, however, failed in gaining the universal acceptance. Distal embolic filters are usually used during the surgical procedures like carotid artery disease treatment, percutaneous coronary intervention, and others. Distal embolic filters allow smaller debris particles to pass through. As according to Hori et al, embolic particles less than 100 micrometers can be tolerated more before interfering with microcirculatory function than larger particles, as smaller particles are less likely to cause end-organ damage. Some of the advantages of distal embolic filters are: preserve antegrade flow, contract imaging is possible throughout the procedure and simple to use. Whereas, disadvantages include the larger diameter sheath which is usually required to maintain most filters in their collapsed state during the advancements in the lesion, lack of ability to tailor guidewire characteristics to specific lesions, reduced maneuverability of integrated filter guidewire systems when compared with stand-alone guidewires and others.
