OBJECTIVE To assess the effect of more intensive medical therapy on the rate of transcranial Doppler (TCD) microemboli and cardiovascular events in patients with asymptomatic carotid stenosis (ACS). DESIGN A prospective study. SETTING A teaching hospital. PATIENTS Four hundred sixty-eight patients with ACS greater than 60% by Doppler peak velocity. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES We compared (1) the proportion of ACS patients who had microemboli on TCD, (2) cardiovascular events, (3) rate of… CONTINUE READING
