Abstract

Conclusion: • Carotid vascular disease is prevalent in the US and results in significant mortality and morbidity when untreated • Results of trials comparing the invasive treatment options are ongoing and have shown somewhat conflicting results • Studies support the use of angioplasty and stenting in certain patient populations • Patients with carotid stenosis who are likely to benefit more from carotid angioplasty and stenting than from CEA include pts with significant comorbidities that make them poor surgical candidates • Elderly pts may be at higher risk of having a minor stroke within 30 days following stenting than CEA • The use of protective embolic filters is important in the outcome following angioplasty and stenting
