Carotid artery stenosis is the major cause of the stroke associated with ischemic origin and carries increased mortality and morbidity. Since carotid artery endarterectomy (CEA) was first performed in 1950, in conjunction with the advanced technology and increased experience under the guidance of randomized controlled trials, balloon angioplasty and carotid artery stenting, which have similar mortality and morbidity, have become comparable with CEA. Determining the optimal treatment option for each patient is the most important issue in carotid artery stenosis. Today, there have been improvements in technology and recent advances in the cardiovascular sciences. Moreover, there is increased experience, increased attention to patient selection, and a team approach to find the most suitable treatment for the patient. In this review, we briefly discuss the current treatment approaches for carotid artery stenosis under the guidance of the modern studies.
