OBJECTIVE Hyperperfusion syndrome is a rare but potentially devastating complication that can occur after carotid endarterectomy (CEA). The purpose of this study was to determine whether intraoperative transcranial regional cerebral oxygen saturation (rSO(2)) monitoring via near-infrared spectroscopy could be reliably used to identify patients at risk for post-CEA hyperperfusion. METHODS rSO(2) was intraoperatively monitored for 50 patients undergoing CEA for treatment of ipsilateral internal… CONTINUE READING
