Conference paper


These is no doubt, that electroencephalography can show variations during carotid endarterectomy before and after clamping. Many authors, especially in the English speaking literature have done a lot of work to prove that it is worthwhile to monitor the patients during carotid endarterectomy; however, the native EEG may be difficult to interpret at least for vascular surgeons while a spectral arrangement might be easier to interpret.
