To the Editor: I read with interest the article by Hender and colleagues recently published in the Journal.1 I agree with the authors' conclusion that there is presently insufficient evidence to suggest the widespread use of endoluminal treatment for carotid artery disease. However, there are a number of problems with the authors' interpretation of our recent article comparing the outcome of surgical and endoluminal treatment of symptomatic carotid stenosis.2
