Abstract: A policy of intra-operative transcranial Doppler (TCD) and completion angioscopy was previously associated with virtual abolition of intra-operative stroke (apparent upon recovery from anaesthesia) following carotid endarterectomy (CEA). The aims of this study were to determine whether the prevalence of technical error has diminished with experience and whether our monitoring/quality control policy was still associated with low rates of intra-operative stroke 20 years after its introduction.
