Abstract

So far, angioplasty with stenting of the carotid arteries does not seem to offer any clear advantage over traditional carotid endarterectomy for patients with symptomatic or asymptomatic stenosis. This paper reviews recent and ongoing studies of carotid revascularization, with conclusions on how these treatments should be used, based on what we know now.
