Is luminal narrowing the only determinant of vulnerability of a plaque? Vulnerable plaque is a concept well accepted in the coronary circulation but not so well established in the carotid plaque. In studies carried out in the coronary circulation it has been shown that plaque ruptures often occur at low degrees of luminal narrowing and that percent stenosis is a poor predictor of plaque rupture.

The pathological characteristics of carotid artery atherosclerosis are described in elegant detail by Virmani et al. in Chapter 1. Here, we review the epidemiology of carotid artery atherosclerosis, including its distribution, determinants and risks conferred by its presence. The available evidence demonstrates that carotid artery atherosclerosis is common and high risk, and the identification and treatment of carotid artery atherosclerosis may substantially reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease.
