In the last 10 years, CAS became an important alternative to surgery. However, many of the trials regarding stroke prevention had controversial requirements regarding the endovascular approach, leading to questionable conclusions. This review critically addresses results from previous randomized studies on efficacy and safety of the first established therapy for carotid artery stenosis, carotid endarterectomy (CEA) compared to the challenger, carotid artery stenting (CAS), as a newer and less invasive endovascular technique.
