A lipid-poor plaque and asymptomatic status in women are associated with higher peak systolic velocity on duplex ultrasound after carotid endarterectomy.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES Recurrent stenosis is a drawback of carotid endarterectomy (CEA), and may lead to recurrent symptoms and reintervention. Restenosis can be detected by duplex ultrasound scanning (DUS) with cutoff values based on peak systolic velocity (PSV), which vary among vascular laboratories. On short term, histological carotid plaque characteristics have… (More)
