Current guidelines for management of carotid stenosis are based on a series of trials dating back to the 1990s. If you ask today’s guests, virtually no other area of neurology is so badly in need of an update. Dr. Seemant Chaturvedi, the Stewart Greenebaum Endowed Professor of Stroke Neurology at University of Maryland School of Medicine, and Dr. Cheryl Bushnell is Professor of Neurology, Vice Chair of Research, Stroke Division Chief at Wake Forest Baptist Health join us for a discussion of the major advances in medical therapy for stroke prevention and why these advances require new trials to refine patient selection for revascularization. They’ll also discuss the growing role of plaque imaging in treatment decisions. Series 2, Episode 6
