The Sentinel Procedure
The deployment of the Sentinel is a straightforward endovascular procedure that takes place prior to the TAVI device or other endovascular devices being introduced, in order to protect the brain from stroke or other neurological events that may result from the procedure. The device is designed to be intuitive to use and, importantly, to avoid interference with the primary procedure since it is delivered from the right radial artery of the patient.
Access right radial or brachial artery and deliver Sentinel to aortic arch.
Proximal filter deployed in brachiocephalic artery.
Tip deflected around curve to access left common carotid artery.
Distal filter deployed in left common carotid artery.
Valve implantation performed with Sentinel device in place.
Sentinel and debris removed following TAVI procedure.
