Treatment Without Complication Treatment Complicated by Major Morbidity Treatment Complicated by Mortality Coiling:$25,734 Clipping:$23,574 Coiling:$40,502 Clipping: $36,188 Coiling:$56,020 Clipping:$68,165 Medicare Reimbursement: $12,599 Medicare Reimbursement: $22,946 Medicare Reimbursement: $22,946 For the second study, results showed that out of the total 181,200 carotid endarterectomy procedures (CEA) and 12,485 carotid artery stenting procedures (CAS), carotid artery stenting was associated with significantly higher costs than carotid endarterectomy.
