  A study is performed to evaluate the incidence of peri-operative stroke during a carotid endarterectomy based on whether the surgeon uses a shunt during the procedure or not. The authors calculate the odds ratio of suffering from stroke if the surgeon uses a shunt is 0.84 (95% CI: 0.72 1.12) compared to when the surgeon does not use a shunt. What is the most appropriate interpretation of this finding?
A. Use of shunt decreases risk of stroke by 84%
B. Use of a shunt does not decrease or increase risk of stroke
C. Use of shunt does not decreases the risk of stroke
D. Use of shunt decreases risk of stroke with a 0.84 odds ratio
E. Use of shunt decreases risk of stroke by 16%
