ABSTRACT
The article cites a research study that whether stenting led to more stroke or death than did endarterectomy in carotid stenosis. The study was conducted through a randomized controlled trial of around 527 patients with a retinal transient ischemic attack or nondisabling stroke in the past 120 days and stenosis of 60 to 99 percent. It was concluded that in patients with carotid stenosis, the risk for stroke or death was higher with stenting than with endarterectomy.
