Stenting, Surgery Appear Comparable for Opening Neck Artery
Date:2/1/2012

he findings, said the research is valuable.

"First, it supports the durability of carotid stenting over time, and provides additional evidence for this minimally invasive treatment option," he said. "Second, it suggests a link between the recurrence of blockages and future strokes. This is an interesting observation, which has potential implications for how we manage patients who develop recurrent narrowing in their carotid artery."

Nallamothu said patients should almost always get to decide which strategy they prefer. Carotid stenting is a bit more expensive than surgery, he noted, and "side effects are the big issue. Carotid stenting appears to lower the risks of heart attacks relative to (surgery) around the time of the procedure, while the reverse is true in regards to the risk of stroke," he added.

The study was scheduled for release Wednesday at the American Stroke Association conference in New Orleans.

Research presented at meetings should be considered preliminary until published in a peer-reviewed medical journal.
