Question: Why has this indicator has changed to include the word "elective"?

This is follow up to a prior question: "Elective Carotid Intervention";.

Answer:

The data element definition requiring documentation in the medical record of "elective" has been present since implementation in January 2008. The only change is that the definition was broadened to include other carotid interventions, such as stents, in addition to CEA.
