Histological features of carotid plaque in patients with ocular ischemia versus cerebral events.

Abstract:

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Patients with carotid artery stenosis and ocular ischemic events have a much lower risk of future ipsilateral ischemic stroke on medical treatment and lower procedural risks for endarterectomy and stenting than patients with cerebral ischemic events, and are closer in risk to patients with asymptomatic stenosis.
