|Title:||Synchronous cardiac and carotid revascularisation: the devil is in the detail.|
|Citation:||EUR J VASC ENDOVASC SURG, 2010, 40 (3), pp. 303-308|
|Abstract:||Studies reporting outcomes following staged/synchronous carotid revascularisation prior to cardiac surgery have generally concluded that procedural strokes are reduced. However, virtually none have commented specifically on the risk of stroke in patients with bilateral carotid disease who then undergo their cardiac procedure in the presence of an unoperated, contralateral stenosis. If carotid disease really was an important cause of peri-operative stroke, these patients should incur a much higher risk of stroke following their cardiac procedure.|
