Tejas R. Shah, Peter L. Faries

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Carotid stenosis is responsible for approximately 30+++ of strokes, and carotid endarterectomy is considered to be the gold-standard treatment. With advancements in endovascular technology carotid angioplasty and stenting (CAS) has been proposed as an alternative to surgery in appropriate risk patients. This chapter explores the current indications, techniques, and outcomes of carotid stenting along with updates on several ongoing trials comparing carotid stenting and endarterectomy. CAS serves as a highly effective modality of treatment for the right patient in the armamentarium of treating carotid artery disease.
