Impact of Preoperative Ultrasonography Screening For Carotid Artery Stenosis in Lung Cancer Patients.

Summary of "Impact of Preoperative Ultrasonography Screening For Carotid Artery Stenosis in Lung Cancer Patients."

Stroke is a major cause of morbidity or mortality after lung surgery. CAS is useful for detecting carotid artery stenosis, which is one of the causes of stroke. To investigate the frequency of, and risk factors for, preoperative carotid artery stenosis and to determine whether ultrasonographic carotid artery screening (CAS) contributes to preventing postoperative stroke or cardiovascular comorbidities in lung cancer patients.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Blood clot formation in any part of the CAROTID ARTERIES. This may produce CAROTID STENOSIS or occlusion of the vessel, leading to TRANSIENT ISCHEMIC ATTACK; CEREBRAL INFARCTION; or AMAUROSIS FUGAX.

Transient complete or partial monocular blindness due to retinal ischemia. This may be caused by emboli from the CAROTID ARTERY (usually in association with CAROTID STENOSIS) and other locations that enter the central RETINAL ARTERY. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p245)

Damages to the CAROTID ARTERIES caused either by blunt force or penetrating trauma, such as CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA; THORACIC INJURIES; and NECK INJURIES. Damaged carotid arteries can lead to CAROTID ARTERY THROMBOSIS; CAROTID-CAVERNOUS SINUS FISTULA; pseudoaneurysm formation; and INTERNAL CAROTID ARTERY DISSECTION. (From Am J Forensic Med Pathol 1997, 18:251; J Trauma 1994, 37:473)

A measurement of the thickness of the carotid artery walls. It is measured by B-mode ULTRASONOGRAPHY and is used as a surrogate marker for ATHEROSCLEROSIS.

Pathological conditions involving the CAROTID ARTERIES, including the common, internal, and external carotid arteries. ATHEROSCLEROSIS and TRAUMA are relatively frequent causes of carotid artery pathology.
