Pooled analysis of long-term outcomes of stenting or endarterectomy in symptomatic carotid stenosis

Takeaway

  • Both carotid artery stenting (CAS) and carotid endarterectomy (CEA) show robust clinical durability in the postprocedural period; safety improvements for CAS in the periprocedural period are needed.

Why this matters

    Comparison of long-term outcomes in large trials for CAS and CEA will support treatment decisions and determine prognosis for stroke prevention.
