Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In recent years, novel knowledge on the pathogenesis of carotid artery stenosis has been increasing with the development of diagnostic imaging techniques such as plaque imaging. In addition to carotid endarterectomy and carotid artery stenting, new treatment options are being introduced. Although the degree of stenosis has been the most important indicator to determine eligibility for treatment, the morphology and vulnerability of the plaque are now also being taken into consideration. In this issue, we review recent advances in the pathogenesis, diagnosis, and treatment of carotid artery stenosis and provide an insight into future issues.

We look forward to receiving your submissions to this Special Issue.
