Abstract

Although respondents had different views about the best strategy to manage an asymptomatic carotid stenosis, most respondents agreed that aggressive medical management and the adoption of a healthy lifestyle are important in preventing progression of cerebral and systemic vascular disease, regardless of whether a surgical or catheter-based intervention is also performed. In cases in which surgery or stenting is pursued, selection of an experienced surgeon or interventionalist with a history of low complication rates is critical to the ensuring the best possible outcome. Comments from this interactive feature will remain available at www.nejm.org, along with data on the voting results.
