ABSTRACT
The article presents the authors' comment on a research study conducted to determine whether stenting led to more stroke or death than did endarterectomy in carotid stenosis. The author says that carotid scenting should be recommended only for patients at high risk for cardiovascular complications after endarterectomy based on the results of the stenting and angioplasty. He rejects the notion that the stenting produces worse outcomes.
