can we create guidelinesusing the data of the Trial?
“the prevalence of severe carotiddisease (>80%% stenosis of ICA) amongpatientsundergoingPercutaneousCoronary Intervention (PCI)/Open HeartSurgery (OHS) isestimated to be 6% to 12%.”
“…optimal treatment of patients with concurrentcarotid and coronaryarterydiseaseremainsunresolveddespite >110 publicationsduring the last 30 years reporting results in 9,000 patients.”

Do PCI affect the rate of Major AdverseCardiovascularEvents in patients with carotidarterystenosis?
RELATED COMPLICATIONS: death, MI, stentthrombosis
Van Kuijk et al. Am.J.Cardiol, 2009
SuspensionofDoubleAntiPlateletTherapyafterPercutaneousCoronaryIntervention (PCI) isassociated with the risk of peri-operative Major AdverseCardiovascularEvents due to stentthrombosis
Stentthrombosisis a multifactorialprocess
Surfacecoating: DrugElutingStents (DES), Bare Metal Stents (BMS)
PCI with BMS: The European Society of Cardiology + ACC/AHA recommends DAPT for a minimum of 6 weeks after PCI
PCI with DES: The European Society of Cardiology + ACC/AHA recommends DAPT for a minimum of 1 year
Always consider the time interval in patients with coronary and carotid lesions
Avoiding DES in patientsscheduled for carotid or aorticsurgery can save 6-9 months.
RELATED COMPLICATIONS: Severe bleeding (life-threatening, requiring surgical intervention, transfusion)
Bleeding and hematoma of the neck are the leadingcauses of in-hospital morbidityaftercarotidsurgery
Major AdverseCardiovascularEvents and bleeding are the mainpredictors for unplanned hospital readmissionwithin 30 days of CEA
