The incidence of local nerve injury among 192 consecutive carotid endarterectomies in 162 patients between 1977-1983 was determined from review of the medical records. Two facial nerve, 5 hypoglossal nerve, and 2 vagus nerve injuries were discovered for a total incidence of 4.7%. Only the 2 facial nerve injuries failed to improve over 2 years. Followup(More)
The complications (stroke, myocardial infarction, and death) with 192 endarterectomies performed on 162 patients were evaluated and categorized according to the presenting syndrome: asymptomatic bruit, transient ischemic attack, stroke, stroke in progress, and posterior fossa ischemia. Each group's complication rate was then evaluated over several(More)
