The man­age­ment of ­patients ­with com­bined carot­id ­and cor­o­nary ­artery dis­ease ­remains con­tro­ver­sial, large­ly ­because of a ­lack of ­high qual­ity nat­u­ral his­to­ry stud­ies in ­patients ­with asymp­to­mat­ic carot­id dis­ease under­go­ing iso­lat­ed cor­o­nary ­artery ­bypass sur­gery. To ­date, prac­tice rang­es ­from nev­er rec­om­mend­ing addi­tion­al inter­ven­tion to a ­more aggres­sive pol­i­cy of pro­phy­lac­tic carot­id endar­te­rec­to­my. For sur­geons in ­the lat­ter ­group, ­the ­only remain­ing ­debate is wheth­er ­CEA ­should be ­staged or syn­chro­nous. This ­paper ­reviews ­the ratio­nales ­and avail­able evi­dence ­for man­ag­ing ­the car­diac ­patient ­with asymp­to­mat­ic carot­id dis­ease ­and is large­ly ­based on ­the find­ings of 2 recent­ly pub­lished system­at­ic re-­views on ­the sub­ject. These ­reviews sug­gest ­that a reap­prai­sal of prac­tice is nec­es­sary ­before ­the indis­crim­i­nate imple­men­ta­tion of carot­id angio­plas­ty fur­ther com­pli­cates inter­pre­ta­tion of ­the ­already ­poor qual­ity ­data avail­able.
