Description

Retrospective observational study in patients submitted to carotid endarterectomy (CEA) and transluminal carotid angioplasty (TCA), based on the review of 78 medical records divided into 2 groups, according to the presence or absence of symptoms. Patients selected for surgical intervention comprised both asymptomatic with stenosis greater than 80% and symptomatic with >70% stenosis of the lumen of the internal carotid artery (ICA), basing the degrees of stenosis on the NASCET/ECST criteria.
