Abstract: The highest risk of recurrent stroke after suffering a transient ischaemic attack (TIA) or minor stroke is during the first 7-14 days. Contemporary guidelines recommend that carotid endarterectomy (CEA) should be performed within this time period, but there are concerns regarding (1) how this can be achieved logistically and (2) whether this policy is associated with a significant increase in procedural risks.
