PURPOSE Plaque morphology is an important predictor of stroke risk and may also be a predictor of postoperative outcome after carotid endarterectomy (CEA). Thus, the purpose of our study was to evaluate the findings of preoperative dual-source computed tomography (DSCT) of carotid plaque morphology and correlate these findings with histopathological findings. MATERIAL AND METHODS Thirty patients undergoing CEA due to neurological events and high-grade carotid artery stenosis were evaluated… CONTINUE READING
