This chapter presents an introduction to the results of carotid revascularization and reviews the results of a series of randomized trials that have evaluated the respective roles of carotid endarterectomy (CEA) and carotid artery stenting (CAS). It includes early procedural risks, comparison of early outcomes in symptomatic and asymptomatic patients undergoing CEA and CAS, predictors of increased procedural risk after CEA and CAS, new magnetic resonance imaging lesions after CAS and CEA, late outcomes (recurrent stroke, restenosis, health-related quality of life, cost-effectiveness analyses, effect of age on outcome, significance of perioperative, myocardial infarction), interpretation of data, and translation into clinical practice.
