Abstract

The evaluation of patients harboring significant carotid atherosclerotic disease entails a careful evaluation of the likely mechanism(s) leading to the increased risk of future stroke. This will facilitate clinical decision-making in terms of triaging patients to medical therapy alone vs medical therapy and carotid revascularization.
