Total Management of Cerebral Atherosclerosis
Cerebral atherosclerosis is only one aspect of a systemic disease. It is clearly recognized that coronary occlusion is a major morbidity factor in those who suffer from carotid atherosclerosis. If the neurosurgeon is to assume a role other than that of the arterial technician, then he must assume total responsibility for bringing the maximum available total treatment to his patient. Though risk factors are now well known, and methods for minimizing them are well established, most papers on surgical management of atherosclerosis do not report an optimum concomitant medical regimen.
