Abstract

Although carotid endarterectomy has been established as the standard treatment for carotid occlusive disease, the management of perioperative neurological deficits complicating carotid endarterectomy remains controversial. We evaluated emergency stenting for stroke after carotid endarterectomy at our institution. Of the 25 patients who underwent this procedure, 21 had complete neurological recovery. These results need to be evaluated in a larger study population, but our data suggest emergency percutaneous transluminal angioplasty carotid stenting is a safe and effective option to treat perioperative stroke after carotid endarterectomy.
