PURPOSE Accurate calculation of the percentage of stenosis is crucial for identifying candidates for endarterectomy. Our goal was to quantify the reduction in diameter of the distal internal carotid artery (ICA) as a function of proximal ICA stenosis and to discuss the implications of distal ICA narrowing on the calculation of percentage of stenosis using the criteria of the North American Symptomatic Carotid Endarterectomy Trial (NASCET). METHODS We retrospectively reviewed the carotid… CONTINUE READING
