Effect of white-matter lesions on the risk of periprocedural stroke after carotid artery stenting versus endarterectomy in the International Carotid Stenting Study (ICSS): a prespecified analysis of data from a randomised trial

Abstract:

Background

Findings from randomised trials have shown a higher early risk of stroke after carotid artery stenting than after carotid endarterectomy.
