Electroencephalogram monitoring during carotid endarterectomy.


Cerebral protection during carotid endarterectomy is of critical importance. This study reviews our experience with continuous EEG monitoring under general anesthesia during carotid endarterectomy. This experience defines indications for intraluminal shunting based upon electroencephalographic criteria as well as defining the utility of EEG monitoring of both intraoperative anesthesia and the post operative course.
