Abstract: A recent overview indicated that although routine patching is safer than routine primary closure after carotid endarterectomy (CEA), there is no systematic evidence that patch type influences outcome. However, most surgeons still believe that prosthetic patches are probably more thrombogenic than vein patches. This study tested the hypothesis that there was no difference in thrombogenicity between the different patch types.
