I read with interest the commentary by Dr Qureshi regarding the present guidelines for carotid angioplasty and stenting.¹ I agree with the conclusion regarding the need for further data from randomized controlled trials to clarify the present guidelines. However, the author also mentions one present indication for carotid stenting from the The Collaborative Panel of the American Society of Interventional and Therapeutic Neuroradiology, the American Society of Neuroradiology and the Society of Interventional Radiology to include "asymptomatic stenosis ≥90% or near occlusion in high surgical risk patients or those who refuse to undergo carotid endarterectomy after proper informed consent".¹
