Introduction: We report the long-term results of surgery for carotid stenosis in our institute, and suggest a better treatment strategy for high-risk patients. Materials and methods: Our series of 352 carotid surgeries conducted between April 1998 and May 2007 were investigated. CEA comprised 134 (38%), whereas CAS comprised 218 (62%). In August 2007, we sent questionnaires to all patients, and analyzed responses up to May 2008. For patients undergoing regular follow-up, the data were gathered from the medical records. The questions were: (1) mRS at that time, (2) the cause of death if the patient was deceased, (3) newly diagnosed stroke, and (4) newly diagnosed coronary heart disease. Results: The response rate was 68.8%. The average follow-up period was 31.2 months. The average differences in mRS pre- and postoperation were -0.33 and -0.48 in CEA and CAS, respectively. The mortality rate at >30days was 8.2% in CEA, and 5.0% in CAS. The leading cause of death was heart disease (31.8%). Conclusion: Our report suggests that CAS is not inferior to CEA, and both procedures can be managed safely if all characteristics of the carotid lesions are considered.
