Carotid disease has been a matter of intense research in vascular surgery since the first carotid procedure in 1951, however a great deal of information is still lacking in order to reach the optimum in stroke prevention. Cerebrovascular disease is the second cause of death in Western countries, too much still needs to be done. This book is the result of the work of many of the most renowned experts in this field, in an effort to summarize and assess the contemporary knowledge on the pathology, diagnosis and treatment of carotid disease and to build a bridge toward future horizons in the discipline. The Authors have tried not to forget more rare diseases of both carotid and other supra-aortic trunks, in order to give an overview of all the possible causes of cerebrovascular disease with the state of the art therapy.

Ischaemic stroke is the most common form of stroke and is caused by athero-sclerosis in most patients. Several genetic determinants contribute to stroke risk. Of these, carotid intimal-medial wall thickness (IMT) is particularly relevant, because it is a surrogate measure of subclinical atherosclerosis and a strong predictor of future ischaemic stroke. Approximately one-fourth of all strokes are caused by carotid artery disease, a condition wherein one or both carotid arteries in the neck become blocked by plaque, which can break off and cause

12/02/2011Β Β· Cerebrovascular disease remains a leading cause of morbidity, mortality, and health care expenditure in the United States. Approximately 80% of strokes are ischemic in origin, with 20% to 25% due to atherosclerotic disease of the carotid artery. It is well established that untreated, symptomatic carotid stenosis confers a 25% risk of stroke within 2 years, and that asymptomatic carotid Carotid Artery Disease Clinical Trials.
