 #841880

  A previously healthy 72-year-old man is brought to the physician because of two episodes of transient paresis in the left arm during the past 2 days; each episode lasted for 3 to 4 minutes. No bruits are heard over the carotid arteries, and there are no cardiac murmurs. Carotid duplex ultrasonography and confirmatory arteriography show a 30% stenosis of the internal carotid arteries bilaterally. Which of the following is the most appropriate next step in management?

A
) Aspirin therapy

B
) Heparin therapy

C
) Nifedipine therapy

D
) Placement of a carotid endovascular stent

E
) Carotid endarterectomy

  A ?
bilateral 30% stenosis is very unlikely to give you localised, lateral symptoms ( no treatment for stenosis
