Carotid Revascularization Endarterectomy vs. Stenting Trial (CREST)
This study of 1,565 patients describes the largest endovascular training program ever mounted prior to a randomized trial of surgery vs. stenting for vascular disease, in this instance, carotid artery disease. Adequate training for stent performers prior to RCTs remains controversial. The credentialing process and results of the lead-in phase for the CREST trial are presented, providing one model for a comprehensive credentialing process.
