In brief: Risky

That is a very risky strategy, and i wouldn't recommend it or do it on any of my patients.

In brief: No

Risk of reperfusion bleeding into the brain.
Can do each side individually about 2-4 weeks apart. For severe bilateral stenosis, i treat my patients with carotid stents with distal protection, using this approach.
