Stroke induces heavy socioeconomic burdens particularly in developing countries. Considering the multisectional discrepancies, strategies of stroke prevention and management adapted for western populations are not always applicable for patients in developing countries. Currently, carotid endarterectomy is the recommended treatment for severe carotid stenosis in the west. Carotid angioplasty and stenting is an alternative treatment only for patients with a high surgery risk. However, in developing countries such as China, where carotid endarterectomy is widely unavailable, Carotid angioplasty and stenting has developed rapidly in recent years and is becoming a choice of treatment for occlusive carotid diseases.
