Definite plaque echolucency is sssociated with a higher risk of ipsilateral ischaemic stroke during early follow up in the asymptomatic carotid surgery trial-1 (ACST-1)

Abstract:

Several carotid plaque characteristics, including a thin fibrous cap, lipid necrotic core and intraplaque haemorrhage, have been suggested as potential markers to select patients at high risk for future stroke. On ultrasound, these “high risk” characteristics appear echolucent. The Asymptomatic Carotid Surgery Trial-1 (ACST-1) is the largest randomised controlled trial comparing carotid endarterectomy (CEA) with deferral of CEA in patients with severe asymptomatic carotid artery stenosis.
