The mainstay of treatment options for symptomatic carotid stenosis is focused around medical management, carotid endarterectomy, and carotid angioplasty and stent placement. The International Carotid Stenting Study (ICSS), also called Carotid and Vertebral Artery Transluminal Angioplasty Study 2 (CAVATAS 2), the Stent-Supported Percutaneous Angioplasty of the Carotid Artery Versus Endarterectomy (SPACE) trial, the Endarterectomy Versus Angioplasty in Patients with Symptomatic Severe Carotid Stenosis (EVA-3S) trial, the Stenting and Angioplasty with Protection in Patients at High Risk for Endarterectomy (SAPPHIRE) trial, and the Carotid Revascularization Endarterectomy Versus Stenting Trial (CREST) were five major trials which compared carotid endarterectomy and carotid angioplasty and stent placement. We review the results of the trials and incorporation of the results into clinical decision making.
