Substudy (effects of silent infarcts on cognition after carotid revascularization) of International Carotid Stenting Trial.


Phase N/A Results

Summary of Purpose

To compare the frequency of new cerebral ischemic lesions after carotid endarterectomy or stenting for symptomatic stenosis of the internal carotid artery, and to test their impact on cognitive function and quality of life. Cerebral ischemic damage will be assessed before the intervention, and at one day and one month thereafter with (diffusion-weighted) MRI. The scans will be evaluated blinded to treatment assignment and neurological outcome.
