BACKGROUND Carotid endarterectomy reduces the risk of stroke in patients with recently symptomatic stenosis. [...] Key MethodRESULTS 5893 patients with 33000 patient-years of follow-up were analysed. Sex (p=0.003), age (p=0.03), and time from the last symptomatic event to randomisation (p=0.009) modified the effectiveness of surgery. Benefit from surgery was greatest in men, patients aged 75 years or older, and those randomised within 2 weeks after their last ischaemic event, and fell rapidly with increasing…Expand
