Prevention and treatment of ischemic carotid-related strokes is a research priority. All controversial issues should be addressed to optimize patient outcomes. The current series are the second part of two series on the prevention and treatment of carotid artery stenosis and carotid-related strokes. Hopefully, these two series will help to answer many of the current questions and to resolve some of the controversial issues on the topic.
