The article discusses a study by researcher A. Halliday and his colleagues at John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford, England, which observed whether immediate carotid endarterectomy (CEA) is better than deferred CEA for long-term outcomes in patients with severe, asymptomatic carotid artery stenosis. The study, which was published in a 2010 issue of the journal "Lancet," found that immediate endarterectomy reduced long-term risk for nonperioperative stroke.

    We report our experience using transradial access (TRA) for carotid artery stenting (CAS). Eighty-eight patients underwent CAS using a nonfemoral approach, 79 of them by TRA. Carotid artery stenting was performed using standard techniques with a long hydrophilic sheath. Mean age was 69.5 years....
