The trial was funded by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Results of the study appear today in the online first edition of the New England Journal of Medicine.*

University at Buffalo Neurosurgery played a key role in the investigation as a leading enroller and the designated CAS training site for more than 200 surgeons, neurosurgeons, radiologists, and cardiologists participating in the study. University at Buffalo Neurosurgery is one of the busiest neuroendovascular laboratories and one of the most experienced and successful practitioners of carotid stenting in the world.
