Özet

AIM: The aim of carotid endarterectomy (CEA) is the successful removal of the atherosclerotic plaque and meticulous anatomical and physiological reconstruction of the carotid artery without any perioperative complications. Endarterectomy can also be carried out with regional anesthesia, which allows monitoring of the neurological status. This study reviews patients who underwent CEA with regional anesthesia.
