Abstract: Vascular surgeons perceive that carotid endarterectomy carries a higher risk of stroke if performed by a surgical trainee. Accordingly, some trainees consider that they receive a less than adequate training in carotid surgery before taking up a consultant position. The aim of this study was to establish whether the stroke rate was adversely affected if carotid endarterectomy was performed by a surgical trainee under consultant supervision.
