Since major prospective randomized multicenter studies (NASCET, ECST, ACAS) have assured the significant effect of the carotid reconstruction on stroke prevention, the main interest in carotid surgery focuses on modern radiologic procedures, new aspects in surgical technique, and perioperative region, paricularly of the carotid artery is, therefore, also best treated in an interdisciplinary way involving the neurologist, angioradiologist, and vascular surgeon. These current themes need to be discussed and constantly revised with new developing aspects
