Abstract: perioperative stroke reduces the clinical effectiveness of carotid endarterectomy (CEA). Postoperative thrombotic stroke may be reduced in incidence by the use of transcranial Doppler-directed Dextran-40 therapy. This programme requires the purchase of additional equipment and employment of more staff. This study examined whether this additional financial outlay was cost-effective in terms of saving expenditure by preventing postoperative thrombotic stroke.
