Correlation of intraoperative electroencephalography with neurologic deficit after carotid endarterectomy.

Abstract

In an attempt to prevent morbidity and mortality in carotid endarterectomy, we monitored 47 operations with intraoperative EEG to determine which patients should have a shunt during endarterectomy. The EEG was recorded for up to five minutes during test carotid cross-clamping. When EEG asymmetry between the cerebral hemispheres occurred, the clamp was… (More)
