PURPOSE We reviewed the history and preoperative investigations of patients with early postoperative neurologic events after carotid thromboendarterectomy in an attempt to identify risk factors for neurologic complications. METHODS Patients with neurologic events/complications (S group, n = 14 patients) were compared with an age- and disease-matched control group (C group, n = 42 patients) selected from the whole carotid thromboendarterectomy material between 1987 and 1996.
