The choose of the best anaesthesia for carotid surgery is a very debated item: the locoregional techniques probably offer more hemodynamic stability and a direct neurologic monitoring, while general anaesthesia allows the complete control of airways and ventilation and reduces the global stress for the patient. This review analyzes the data of studies that compare general and locoregional anaesthesia. Among the latter, possibly elective techniques, the one described by Winnie combines an optimal analgesic efficacy with the lowest rate of adverse effects. A single bolus of a local anesthetic injected at a C4 level (apex of scalene muscles triangle) guarantees a complete block of the superficial and deep cervical plexuses.
