Numerous multicenter, randomized, preventive and therapeutic stroke trials have been initiated or already finished in the last years. Due to some positive results the stroke societies have elaborated the new guidelines for stroke prevention and therapy, based on the results of evidence based medicine. Unfortunately, in the every day practice, the neurologist, vascular and cardiac surgeon, cardiologist or internist should answer many interdisciplinary questions of stroke prevention or therapy. Because of the lack of large, international trials, the author summarizes the most important publications and his personal experience regarding the interdisciplinary questions (stroke in hospital, endarterectomy and CABG, stent or endarterectomy, complications after CEA) of stroke care.
