Abstract

Perspectives in Vascular Surgery and Endovascular Therapy Volume 16, Number 2, 2004 Introduction Carotid Disease: Present Management and Future Trends Stroke is responsible for an estimated 150,000 deaths annually, the third leading cause of death after cardiac disease and cancer. Each year the in- cidence of new strokes is 700,000, and carotid artery disease is responsible for 10% to 20% of cases. Carotid endarterectomy, the gold standard for management of both symptomatic and asymp- tomatic carotid stenosis, is supported by level 1 prospective, randomized studies. As demonstrat- ed in other vascular beds, minimally invasive en- dovascular intervention is clearly on the horizon and threatens to take over supremacy. The indi- viduals who were invited to participate in this symposium have demonstrated specific expertise in the diagnosis and management of patients with carotid artery disease and summarize their strate- gies in this issue of Perspectives in Vascular Surgery and Endovascular Therapy.
