Carotid atherosclerotic plaques are one of the causes of cerebral stroke. The risk is higher for the vulnerable plaques but there are no specific markers to identify them. The aim of our study was to identify vulnerable carotid plaques by the mean of atherosclerotic serological markers in patients undergoing carotid revascularization by endarterectomy (CEA) or stenting (CAS).

Abstract

Carotid atherosclerotic plaques are one of the causes of cerebral stroke. The risk is higher for the vulnerable plaques but there are no specific markers to identify them. The aim of our study was to identify vulnerable carotid plaques by the mean of atherosclerotic serological markers in patients undergoing carotid revascularization by endarterectomy (CEA) or stenting (CAS).
