[Airway involvement in the postoperative period of carotid endarterectomy. Report of a case].

Abstract

We report a case of a fifty-seven year old man that was diagnosed a bilateral carotid disease and a carotid endarterectomy was practiced on him in the left carotid, and afterwards in a 12 day lapsus of time, the same was done in the right carotid. In the course of the immediate post-operative period, the patient presented a neck haematoma which required its removal and afterwards he developed a glottis oedema which called for the realisation of a tracheotomy in order to control the airway.
