A preliminary report lends evidence to support female sex being considered as an independent risk factor for new stroke occurrence after carotid revascularization in...

Carotid stenting demonstrates comparable short- and long-term results to endarterectomy

Pooled patient-level data from more than 2,500 asymptomatic, non-octogenarian subjects have shown that carotid artery stenting (CAS) achieved comparable short- and long-term results to...

Avoiding a strategy of post-stent balloon dilation during transcarotid artery revascularization (TCAR) may be unnecessary—a “contradistinction” to results shown in conventional transfemoral carotid artery...

TCAR may be associated with favorable outcomes in restenotic carotid lesions,...

Transcarotid artery revascularization (TCAR) may be associated with favorable in-hospital outcomes for the treatment of restenotic carotid lesions after carotid endarterectomy (CEA), suggests a...
