BONAMIGO, Telmo P.  e  LUCAS, Márcio L.. Critical analysis of indications and outcomes of surgical treatment for carotid disease. J. vasc. bras. [online]. 2007, vol.6, n.4, pp.366-377. ISSN 1677-5449.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1677-54492007000400011.

Treatment of carotid disease has been in focus over the past years, especially with the advent of the endovascular technique, which supports use of carotid angioplasty and stenting (CAS) in "high-risk" patients for carotid endarterectomy (CAE). We analyzed current outcomes of the treatment for carotid disease using both techniques. Furthermore, we performed some comments based on data from the literature, particularly in high-risk patients. We conclude that, up to the present moment, there is no evidence and justification for large use of CAS in patients with carotid disease, even in high-risk patients, such as in octogenarians. However, we believe that CAS could be useful in the treatment of a small number of patients with carotid disease (less than 4%), such as those with hostile neck, previous cervical radiation and in some cases of high carotid stenosis. When performed using the required technical skills, CAE is still the best choice for patients with carotid disease.

Palavras-chave : Carotid endarterectomy; carotid angioplasty/stenting.
