BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Asymptomatic patients with carotid stenosis benefit less from carotid endarterectomy (CEA) than symptomatic patients because the risk of embolic events is lower, but it is not known whether the hemodynamic effect of CEA is different between the groups. We evaluated hemodynamics of symptomatic and asymptomatic patient groups before and after CEA. METHODS Forty-six independent patients with a unilateral high-grade carotid stenosis, 23 asymptomatic and 23 symptomatic… CONTINUE READING
