CREST-2’s results are probably more than a year away. In the meantime, what to do about diagnosed severe (but asymptomatic) carotid stenosis? Recent results suggest that medical management compares favorably with the surgical approach.

In this edition, we address the question with a conversation between Dr. Allan Brett, NEJM Journal Watch‘s editor-in-chief, and Dr. Seemant Chaturvedi, a University of Maryland neurologist who serves on CREST-2’s executive committee.

[Running time: 16 minutes]
