The author reflects on the studies concerning the efficacy of carotid revascularization endarterectomy and stenting trial (CRST) in managing carotid stenosis. The author cites the lowest rate of (CREST) in terms of perioperative complications. The author also notes the 10-year-result of carotid endarterectomy (CEA) in treating patients with carotid artery stenosis in which the perioperative rate of stroke or death were determined in the European trial.
