Understand your risk factors with the Stroke Risk Calculator [3] Abstract result summary: The following regression parameters were used to produce 10-year stroke-risk estimates and assign risk points: Age (one point/year after age 20 years), Male sex (three points), Low education (four points), Renal disease (eight points), Diabetes (seven points), CHF (congestive heart failure) (five points) PAD (peripheral arterial disease) (two points), High BP (blood pressure) (two points) CAD (ischemic heart disease) (one point), Smoking (eight points), Alcohol (>7 alcoholic drinks per week) (three points), Low physical activity (two points), Indicators of anger (four points), Depression (four points), Anxiety (three points) According to MyRiskStroke Calculator, a person with <50, 75, and 90 risk points has a 10-year stroke risk of <3%, 28%, and >75%, respectively Fig.

Carotid atherosclerotic disease accounts for about one-fifth of all strokes, with the degree of stenosis correlating to the degree of risk. Plaque within the walls of the carotid can lead to thrombus formation that can dislodge and produce distal embolization to the brain. Specifically, an unstable irregular ulcerated carotid plaque can present high risk for a combination of platelets with thrombotic fragments containing calcific material to break free and produce acute stroke symptoms; to prevent stroke, such cases may require urgent intervention by surgery when antiplatelet therapy with clopidogrel and aspirin may be insufficient [12].

However, for those with 70–99 % symptomatic stenosis without nearocclusion, endarterectomy provided a significant absolute risk reduction of 16 % for incurring ipsilateral ischemic stroke [13]. The Carotid Revascularization Endarterectomy versus Stenting Trial (CREST) concluded in 2011 that there were no significant differences in the primary endpoint outcomes between carotid endarterectomy (CEA) and stenting but periprocedural stroke and death rates were significantly lower for symptomatic patients undergoing CEA which may reflect the early stages of technical development for stenting that remain to be improved upon; furthermore, those over age 70 did better with surgery [14].
