Complications associated with carotid endarterectomy.


A discussion of some of the complications associated with carotid endarterectomy is presented. Accurate knowledge of anatomy is essential in preventing injury to nerves, blood vessels and other regional anatomical structures. Complications following carotid artery operation may be severe and must be avoided if possible. Indications for carotid endarterectomy are still controversial. The final decision for or against operation rests on the judgment of the vascular surgeon.
