To evaluate the effect of intraoperative duplex scanning (IDS) on the incidence of perioperative and postoperative strokes as well as residual and recurrent stenosis, we reviewed 141 patients who underwent 152 consecutive carotid endarterectomies (CEAs) between July, 1990 and June, 1995. Follow-up of 129 cases, with a mean follow-up of two years, revealed no perioperative deaths and three strokes for a combined perioperative stroke-death rate of 2.3 per cent. In 50% (64 of 129) of the CEAs… CONTINUE READING
