OBJECTIVE Several reports in the literature have described the value of regional cerebral oximetry (rSO(2)) as a neuromonitoring device during carotid endarterectomy (CEA). The use of rSO(2) is enticing because it is simpler and less expensive than other neuromonitoring modalities. This study was performed to compare the efficacy of rSO(2) with… CONTINUE READING
