External carotid endarterectomy for cerebral and ocular ischemia

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

We are reporting a series of 8 patients in whom external carotid endarterectomy was performed for ocular or cerebral ischemia or embolism. High quality cerebral angiography and noninvasive cerebrovascular studies are useful in the evaluation and the follow up of this group. These include 133Xenon cerebral blood flow measurements, ocular pneumoplethysmography. The follow up ranged from 3 months to 2 years. The complications included 2 postoperative common carotid artery occlusions, one of which was surgically reopened. There were no strokes or ischemic symptoms in the follow up period. Anatomical, physiological, pathological and clinical data supporting the value of this operation are reviewed. The indications for external carotid artery endarterectomy and the operative technique are discussed.
