  1. Carotid endarterectomy for asymptomatic patients. Assessing results of a quantitative synthesis.

    Article - En anglais

    Carotid endarterectomy (CE) surgery for asymptomatic patients remains controversial despite hundreds of published studies and recent randomized trials.

    Safety and efficacy are assessed using a quantitative synthesis method derived from meta-analysis and a « critical multiplist » inference approach.

    In addition, multivariate analyses reveal that use of a surgical shunt could further improve CE outcomes.

    Methods are examined for both their « confirmatory » and « exploratory » value.
