(35) evaluated the intermediate-term morphological outcome in 303 patients undergoing carotid stenting. A total of 298 were successfully stented. Asymptomatic patients were included. Outcomes were independently reviewed. The procedural all-stroke and death rate was 3%. Over a median of 12 months (range 3–36), there was one contralateral stroke at 6 months and one ipsilateral stroke at 4 months.
3. Evidence-Based Efficacy in Preventing Stroke 29 The Stenting and Angioplasty with Protection in Patients at High Risk for Endarterectomy (SAPPHIRE) study was a randomized trial comparing carotid stenting and endarterectomy in those considered to be at high surgical risk. This has recently been completed and the 12-month results presented, showing a definitive advantage of stenting.
