PURPOSE The Asymptomatic Carotid Atherosclerosis Study (ACAS) showed that carotid endarterectomy reduces stroke risk in symptom-free patients with 60% or greater internal carotid artery (ICA) stenosis. This will surely lead to the performance of an increased number of screening duplex examinations. Assuming that positive study results will lead to arteriography or endarterectomy and keeping in mind the modest benefit for prophylactic endarterectomy demonstrated by ACAS (absolute risk reduction… CONTINUE READING
