Los objetivos del estudio se discriminaron segun la clasificacion neurologica, teniendo en cuenta los lineamientos expuestos por los estudios mas significativos en el area, como lo son el ACAS (Endarterectomy for Asymptomatic Carotid Artery Stenosis)[24] y el NASCET (North American Symptomatic Carotid Endarterectomy Trial) [25].
* CEA performed soon after TIA or minor stroke (see below) reduces the risk of recurrent disabling stroke or death (RR 0.52) in patients with severe (70--99%) ipsilateral internal carotid artery stenosis (grading according to NASCET criteria).
In the re-analysis of data from the North American Symptomatic Carotid Endarterectomy Trial (NASCET), researchers included patients with symptomatic stenosis and either stage 3 CKD or preserved kidney function.
During the 1980s, two prospective randomized clinical trials (i.e., North American Symptomatic Carotid Endarterectomy Trial [NASCET] and European Carotid Surgery Trial) studied plaque removal with carotid endarterectomy versus best medical management for the treatment of patients with ipsilateral carotid artery stenosis (European Carotid Surgery Trialists' Collaborators Group, 1991; NASCET Collaborators, 1991).

In landmark trials done at expert institutions by expert operators, such as the North American Symptomatic Carotid Endarterectomy Trial (NASCET), the risk of stroke and death at 30 days in patients with contralateral carotid occlusion was 14%--well above the 6% limit for symptomatic patients as set by an American Heart Association consensus panel.
