Abstract

Carotid endarterectomy (TEA) remains the treatment of choice for carotid disease characterized by stenosing, hemodynamically significant or embolizing atherosclerotic plaque. One of the greatest risks during surgery is carotid clamping when cerebral ischemia may occur if collateral circulation does not maintain adequate perfusion.
