Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Carotid endarterectomy has been considered the standard of care for carotid artery stenosis in stroke prevention. In recent years, carotid angioplasty and stenting (CAS) became an important alternative in the treatment of carotid occlusive disease. The evolving technology and the use of advanced generation devices have substantially decreased the morbidity of the procedure, while recent studies have shown comparable long-term effects of both procedures on fatal or disabling stroke. As the experience with carotid stenting grows, the potential of this minimally invasive carotid intervention to become the main treatment option for the high-risk as well as for the average asymptomatic patients has become even more apparent.

The current literature on the value of CAS in stroke prevention has been rapidly growing each year. Given the importance of CAS in the field of medicine and research, the journal JCM is launching this Special Issue.

We encourage you and your co-workers to submit your articles reporting on this topic. Reviews or original articles dealing with the value of CAS on stroke prevention, with the comparison of other treatment modalities such as CEA or conservative management as well as articles providing an up-to-date overview of carotid stenting on carotid stenosis management are particularly welcomed. In addition, we warmly invite you to submit articles reporting on evolving CAS techniques, with a special focus on novel technologies and approaches.
