We examined subclinical alterations of cerebral function during carotid endarterectomy (CEA) and predictability of minor cerebral damage by perioperative levels of biochemical markers of brain damage (S100B and neuron-specific enolase [NSE]). Twenty consecutive patients with > or =70% asymptomatic carotid stenosis undergoing elective CEA were enrolled. Pre- and postoperative testing included magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the head, a standardized neurological exam, a battery of… CONTINUE READING
