Relatively long-lasting sinus tachycardia and diffuse electrocardiographic ischemic changes developed in a hemiplegic patient following bilateral carotid endarterectomy. Three different possible mechanisms were considered, and it was felt that section of vagal cardiac fibers was the most probable etiologic factor.

    A major stroke after carotid endareterectomy (CEA) is an event that should be managed according to a planned strategy. Literature data on this issue are not definitive. We reviewed our series in the attempt to define an algorithm of treatment if this complication occurs. A consecutive series of...

    Limb shaking is a rare and atypical presentation for a transient ischemic attack. It can be described as a "cerebral ischemic claudication" due to attenuation in an already compromised cerebral perfusion. The uncharacteristic presentation may lead to confusion and misdiagnosis, for example,...

    Background: In this study we aimed to assess lipid peroxidation during carotid endarterectomy by the formation of PUFA hydroperoxides (PUFAHP) and isoprostanes (IP) and concomitant peroxisomal beta-oxidation as a physiological mechanism to limit their concentration. Two markers of peroxisomal...

    BACKGROUND: Up to 28% of patients undergoing carotid endarterectomy (CEA) are estimated to experience neurocognitive dysfunction following surgery. The complement cascade plays a central role in ischaemia-reperfusion injury. The authors investigated the effect of common polymorphisms in the...
