The article reports on a study by Murad M. H. and colleagues focusing on how senting increases stroke but decreases periprocedural myocardial infarction (MI) compared with endarterectomy in carotid artery disease. As stated, the study showed that carotid artery stenting (CAS) and carotid endarterectomy (CEA) did not differ for death.
