The article reports on a study investigating whether short-term risk for stroke or death is increased more by carotid artery stenting than endarterectomy in symptomatic carotid stenosis. The study found that short-term risk for a composite of stroke or death is increased more by stenting than endarterectomy in symptomatic carotid stenosis, especially in patients who are more than 70 years of age.
