Mid-term results after simultaneous carotid artery stenting and cardiac surgery.
CONCLUSIONS: In this small group of patients, the hybrid procedure was proved to be a safe and efficient way of treatment for patients with concomitant carotid and cardiac diseases. The low rate of perioperative complications and good midterm results are encouraging. PMID: 32247782 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Clinical Impact of Routine Cardiology Consultation Prior to Elective Carotid Endarterectomy in Neurologically Asymptomatic Patients.
CONCLUSION: Routine cardiology consultation before elective CEA in patients with asymptomatic carotid stenosis reduced peri-operative cardiac complications and long term fatal cardiovascular events. This approach may be considered to maximise the risk/benefit ratio of CEA in asymptomatic patients. PMID: 31866235 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Prognostic factors of long-term survival to guide selection of asymptomatic patients for carotid endarterectomy.
CONCLUSIONS: The presence of one or more prognostic factors as well as the various risk prediction models can guide selection of ACS patient subgroups for which a prophylactic CEA should or should not be offered. Decisions to offer prophylactic CEA should weigh in factors like surgeon's experience and hospital expertise/volume. Asymptomatic patients not expected to live long enough to benefit from the procedure should not be considered for CEA, but should be offered best medical treatment.

Perioperative strokes following combined coronary artery bypass grafting and carotid endarterectomy: A nationwide perspective
Conclusion: A strong association was found to exist between perioperative stroke and in-hospital mortality and morbidity after combined CABG and CEA. CEA procedures are thought to mitigate the high stroke rate of 3-5% post-CABG, but our study found that combined procedures exhibit a similar stroke risk undercutting their effectiveness. Further investigative studies on combined CABG+CEA are needed to assess risk-stratification for better patient selection and examine other preventative strategies to minimize the risk of ischemic strokes.

Utilization of Carotid Revascularization for Ischemic Stroke/TIA: A Canadian Perspective (P5.276)
Conclusions:Use of CEA/CAS in patients with acute ischemic stroke/TIA admitted to hospitals in Canada has doubled over the last decade. Differences in utilization by age, sex and across provinces are seen.Disclosure: Dr. Najm has nothing to disclose. Dr. Lindsay has nothing to disclose. Dr. Hill has nothing to disclose.

Anaesthesia for carotid surgery
Publication date: Available online 31 March 2016 Source:Anaesthesia & Intensive Care Medicine Author(s): Katherine Livingstone, Indran Raju Carotid endarterectomy (CEA) is a surgical procedure to prevent strokes in patients with atheromatous disease at the carotid bifurcation. The effectiveness of CEA has been established in large clinical trials. Patients should have surgery performed within 2 weeks from the onset of symptoms. This time frame presents a challenge to the anaesthetist and surgeon in risk stratifying and optimizing patients for surgery. Optimization includes blood pressure (BP) control and use of...

Simultaneous coronary and carotid revascularisation
Conclusion According to our experiences and results, the simultaneous performance of CEA and CABG in patients with severe coexisting carotid artery disease who require coronary revascularization has proved to be a safe and efficacious operative strategy in these high-risk patients.

Effect of Carotid Revascularization Endarterectomy Versus Stenting Trial Results on the Performance of Carotid Artery Stent Placement and Carotid Endarterectomy in the United States
BACKGROUND: CREST (Carotid Revascularization Endarterectomy Versus Stenting Trial) results, published in 2010, showed no difference in the rates of composite outcome (stroke, myocardial infarction, or death) between carotid artery stent placement (CAS) and carotid endarterectomy (CEA). OBJECTIVE: To identify any changes in use and outcomes of CAS and CEA subsequent to the CREST results. METHODS: We estimated the frequency of CAS and CEA procedures in the years 2009 (pre-CREST period) and 2011 (post-CREST period), using data from the National Inpatient Sample (NIS). Demographic and clinical characteristics and in-hospital o...

Patients at elevated risk of major adverse events following endarterectomy for asymptomatic carotid stenosis
Conclusions A high-risk subset of patients undergoing CEA for asymptomatic carotid stenosis can be identified. If patient selection is optimized and perioperative morbidity and mortality are minimized, CEA will continue to play an important role in stroke prevention for those with significant asymptomatic carotid stenosis.

Carotid artery stenting: current role of proximal neuroprotection and technical advancements in stroke prevention
For more than 50 years, carotid endarterectomy has been considered the gold standard therapy to prevent stroke in patients with carotid artery disease. Carotid artery stenting (CAS) has emerged in the last 15 years as minimally invasive alternative to surgery, especially in patients at high surgical risk. Recent randomized trials have challenged this concept reporting a relatively high incidence rate (4–6%) of post-CAS neurological adverse events. The aim of this study is to evaluate the current role of CAS in all-comers with advanced carotid disease, managed with mandatory proximal neuroprotection in a high-volume c...

Clinical Prediction Model Suitable for Assessing Hospital Quality for Patients Undergoing Carotid Endarterectomy Stroke
Conclusions The NCDR CEA score, comprising 7 clinical variables, predicts in-hospital stroke or death after CEA. This model can be used to estimate hospital risk-adjusted outcomes for CEA and to assist with the assessment of hospital quality.

Impact of Glomerular filtration rate on clinical outcomes after carotid artery revascularization in 11,832 patients from the CARE registry
ConclusionsPatients with CKD have a greater number of comorbidities and worse unadjusted in‐hospital and 30‐day outcomes; CKD was not, however, an independent predictor of in‐hospital and 30‐day outcomes after carotid artery revascularization. © 2013 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

Prospective Randomized Trial of ACUSEAL Versus Vascu-Guard Patching in Carotid Endarterectomy
Conclusions: Although CEA patching with ACUSEAL versus Vascu-Guard differed in hemostasis time, the frequency of reexploration for neck hematomas was more frequent in the pericardial patch group; however, only 1 patient had documented suture line bleeding and the surgical reexploration rate is not likely to be patch related. There were not any significant differences in perioperative/late neurologic events and late restenosis in the 2 groups.
