BARRERA, Juan G et al. Carotid artery and plaque. "carotid: an organ". Rev. Col. Cardiol. [online]. 2006, vol.13, n.2, pp.117-127. ISSN 0120-5633.

It is now possible to recommend indications for aortic endarterectomy, based on published clinical essays and revision of large surgical series. Surgery indications will depend on the stenosis degree and the plaque morphology, as well as on the patient's clinical state and the morbid-mortality in this surgical team. As other studies with large case series, evidences that carotid endarterectomy and/or endovascular management, when realized by expert teams, is a safe procedure in patients with surgical indication.

Keywords : carotid disease; endarterectomy; carotid stent; cerebrovascular disease.
