Abstract: Background and purpose Postoperative microemboli in patients undergoing carotid endarterectomy are a significant risk factor for stroke. These emboli can be detected by intraoperative transcranial Doppler monitoring. They are not linked to technical error and are variable between patients. As it is known that platelets play a key role in arterial thrombosis, it was hypothesized that a patient's risk of postoperative carotid thrombosis was linked to the individual's platelet response to physiologic agonists.
