To date, there have been many clinical trials to examine carotid endarterectomy (CEA) for its clinical usefulness, and-in comparison with the results of CEA-carotid artery stenting (CAS) for its clinical impact. The paper summarizes the guideline for extracranial carotid arterial disease, providing the classification of recommendation and level of evidence. Extracranial carotid artery is unique in its geometry, hemodynamics, and hemorheologic characteristics. Invasive or non-invasive imaging methods for the extracranial carotid arterial disease should be used appropriately for decision making. (Korean J Stroke 2011;13:16-19)
