Abstract

Carotid endarterectomy is a controversial surgery from several points of view, and the possibility of intraoperative stroke due to temporary carotid occlusion still raises great concern. Many techniques have been developed to reduce this risk since the first carotid endarterectomy was performed by De Bakey in 1953. The main goal of brain monitoring in carotid surgery is to detect patients at risk of brain ischemia on carotid occlusion and to give indication for temporary shunt.
