AIM Intraoperative hypoperfusion ischemia is one factor that leads to perioperative stroke during carotid endarterectomy. Selective shunting is one way to reduce intraoperative hypoperfusion, but to shunt selectively needs a sensitive and simple monitoring system together with the rules for insertion. Near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) is a monitoring system that can be used throughout the operation, and reflects the cerebral oxygenation instantly, but its value in insertion of shunt tubes is… CONTINUE READING
