There is no consensus as to the most appropriate monitor for detecting ischemia during carotid endarterectomy. Accordingly, simultaneous 16-channel continuous electroencephalogram (EEG) and somatosensory evoked potential (SSEP) monitoring were performed in 64 normocapnic patients undergoing carotid endarterectomy and anesthetized with isoflurane or halothane-nitrous oxide (supplemented with fentanyl). Recordings were obtained before, during, and for 15 min after cross-clamping of the internal… CONTINUE READING
