Can primary PCI be done along with carotid angioplasty?

In this video, Dr. Viveka Kumar, Senior Director - Cath Lab, Max Super Speciality Hospital, Saket, will talk about whether primary PCI be done along with carotid angioplasty, in this video. He explains that the primary PTCA should not be combined with any other procedure unless there is a compelling indication and the thrombus migration in the carotid has happened. The primary PTCA is generally not combined as the carotid has bleeding issues and needs strong anti-platelets therapy, hence is avoided as a combined procedure.
