Assessment of Carotid Artery Stenosis and Lower Limb Peripheral Ischemia Prior to CABG

2018-05-13 16:17:12 | BioPortfolio


From our experience among Egyptian population in our institution, there is an increased prevalence of hidden subclinical peripheral artery disease along with carotid artery affection. Thus, increasing the risk of post-operative morbid complications.We aim to evaluate routine/ non-selective carotid and peripheral arterial screening in asymptomatic patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting in the Egyptian populationIt is a prospective, non-randomized, comparative study including two groups of patients. The study will start from the day of approval of the ethical committee. It will include 260 patients, on basis of "all new comers". Patients will be examined and classified as "high-risk" group (ɳ = 130) or "low-risk" group (ɳ=130).

All patients will have the "routine" preoperative investigations along with evaluation of extracranial carotid system by non-invasive carotid duplex and lower limb arterial system by non-invasive bilateral lower limb arterial duplex.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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)

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.

The two principal arteries supplying the structures of the head and neck. They ascend in the neck, one on each side, and at the level of the upper border of the thyroid cartilage, each divides into two branches, the external (CAROTID ARTERY, EXTERNAL) and internal (CAROTID ARTERY, INTERNAL) carotid arteries.

The splitting of the vessel wall in one or both (left and right) internal carotid arteries (CAROTID ARTERY, INTERNAL). Interstitial hemorrhage into the media of the vessel wall can lead to occlusion of the internal carotid artery and aneurysm formation.

Either of the two principal arteries on both sides of the neck that supply blood to the head and neck; each divides into two branches, the internal carotid artery and the external carotid artery.
