Stroke prevention-surgical and interventional approaches to carotid stenosis.

ABSTRACT: Extracranial carotidartery stenosis is an important cause of stroke that often needs treatment with carotid revascularization. To prevent stroke recurrence, carotid endarterectomy has been well-established for many years in treating symptomatic high- and moderate-grade stenosis. Carotid stenting is an appealing, less invasive alternative to carotid endarterectomy, and several recent trials have compared the efficacy of the 2 procedures in patients with carotid stenosis. Carotid artery stenting has emerged as an important mode of therapy for high-risk patients with symtomatic high-grade stenosis. This review focuses on the current data available that will enable the clinician to decide optimal treatment strategies for patients with carotid stenosis.
