Stroke prevention involves identifying and addressing risk factors. When blood flow to a portion of the brain is blocked, the majority of strokes are caused by strokes. The aim of this trial is to determine the right way to avoid strokes in people with a high blockage of their carotid artery but no signs of strokes due to the blockage. Each eligible participant will be tested to see which treatment is right for him/her. Important stroke risk factors, such as hypertension, diabetes, high cholesterol, cigarette smoking, athletic training, and diet will all be monitored closely.
