Abstract

The majority of carotid revascularization procedures performed at present are in asymptomatic patients. Since such procedures convey no immediate benefit, but rather protect from future hazard, optimization of procedural safety is mandatory. The authors focus their discussion on the methodologies that assess periprocedural myocardial damage and brain injury, as used in past clinical trials, from the fields of perioperative medicine and neurovascular imaging, and discuss methodologies to reduce both events in carotid revascularization.
