Perioperative stroke is a known complication of carotid endarterectomy (CEA) for patients with symptomatic and asymptomatic carotid stenosis. The Carotid Revascularization Endarterectomy Versus Stenting Trial (CREST) has shown that stroke following CEA is associated with nearly a 3-fold increase in the 4-year mortality compared to patients without such an event. However, no studies to date can establish whether the stroke was the cause of the short term mortality. Thus, our objective is to evaluate if perioperative stroke after CEA increases the risk of 30-day mortality.

Recent clinical studies have recently demonstrated a strong association between carotid artery stenosis and coronary artery disease (CAD). However, the clinical impact of carotid plaque composition on...
Carotid endarterectomy (CEA) and carotid angioplasty and stenting (CAS) are well established treatments that have been shown to decrease stroke recurrence in patients with underlying carotid artery di...
Over 150,000 carotid endarterectomy (CEA) procedures are performed each year. Perioperative anesthetic management may be complex due to multiple patient and procedure-related risk factors. The authors...
Significant national variation exists in defining the degree of stenosis that requires intervention in patients with asymptomatic carotid artery stenosis (ACAS). We aimed to evaluate the risk of perio...
Carotid endarterectomy (CEA), especially the eversion carotid endarterectomy (ECEA), is a standard treatment for carotid artery stenosis, but it still has deficiencies. We describe a modified ECEA tec...
The purpose of the Carotid Revascularization Endarterectomy versus Stenting Trial (CREST) is to compare the relatively new procedure of stent-assisted carotid angioplasty (CAS) to the trad...

The aim was the comparison of the perioperative time courses of matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9) and its inhibitor (TIMP-1) during elective carotid artery stenting (CAS). The investigato...
Cerebrovascular disease is a leading cause of death and the leading cause of serious long-term disability. Carotid artery stenting (CAS) and carotid endarterectomy (CEA) are alternative st...

The excision of the thickened, atheromatous tunica intima of a carotid artery.
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)
Meta-analysis of randomized trials in which estimates of comparative treatment effects are visualized and interpreted from a network of interventions that may or may not have been evaluated directly against each other. Common considerations in network meta-analysis include conceptual and statistical heterogeneity and incoherence.
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.
