The Vanderbilt stroke team is a leader in quality clinical care for this life-threatening condition.

The standard benchmark set by the Joint Commission for the complication rate for carotid endarterectomy (CEA) and carotid artery stenting (CAS), surgical procedures used to prevent stroke, is below 6%. Vanderbilt far exceeds this standard with a complication rate of 2.9%.
