Surgical options developed to treat carotid artery stenosis have evolved in the last six decades, and studies have shown the superiority of carotid endarterectomy (CEA) compared to medical therapy. Similarly, as endovascular therapy has evolved over the last two decades, studies reflecting safety, feasibility, and equivalence of carotid artery stenting (CAS) to CEA have been replicated in several studies for intermediate to high surgical risk patients. However, since its inception, the field of CAS has been mired in several controversies and has been subject to intense scrutiny from multiple stakeholders within the field of medicine. This review discusses specific issues concerning CAS that are relevant in the current era.
