Sažetak
Background: To evaluate the use of temporary intraluminal shunt (IS) during operations in our patients for asymptomatic carotid stenosis (ACS) of the internal carotid artery (ICA). Methods: Complications of ICA endarterectomy were reviewed in two groups of asymptomatic patients. In group A (144 patients, operation 1972-1985) temporary IS was used in 43 patients with the intraoperatively measured ICA back pressure <50 mmHg. In group B (170 patients, operation 1986-1998) shunt was used in all cases. Results: The incidence of neurologic deficit was higher ia group A than in group B (5.6% vs 1.2%, p<0.05). Within group A, the incidence of neurologic deficit was significantly higher in the subgroup with back pressure >50 mmHg, and thus without shunt, than in group B with routine use of shunt (6.0% vs 1.2%, p<0.05). There were no differences in the incidence of shunt-related complications between the groups (3.0% vs 4.0%, p>0.05). We had no mortality after operations of asymptomatic patients. Conclusions: The routine use of IS reduced the rate of intraoperative and early postoperative neurologic complications of asymptomatic carotid endarterectomy, and it was not associated with a higher incidence of complications.
