Best medical treatment for a symptomatic carotid artery stenosis Reply

Abstract:
For patients with asymptomatic carotid stenosis, lifestyle changes (particularly smoking cessation) and triple medical therapy (with lipidlowering, antihypertensive, and antiplatelet drugs) substantially reduce, but do not eliminate, the annual risk of the carotid lesion causing a serious stroke. Less definitely, they can also somewhat reduce the immediate risk of carotid endarterectomy causing perioperative stroke or death.
