On the other hand, the mortality and risk of stroke at CEA is 20% in the presence of stroke in evolution or crescendo TIA (13). Hence, this remains a subject of debate. Particular steps in the preoperative management of patients planning to undergo CEA include the appropriate antiplatelet medication. Aspirin therapy is continued in the perioperative period. Anticoagulation with heparin should be considered prior to CEA for high-grade stenosis and symptoms (acute stroke or crescendo TIA) to prevent another ischemic episode or complete arterial occlusion (14, 15).

Patients are usually discharged home on the first or second postoperative day if no complication occurs. They are continued on their antiplatelet and secondary preventative therapy. Postoperatively, a carotid duplex should be performed at 2–6 weeks after CEA. If satisfactory, another duplex should be done 6 months to 1 year later, then every year subsequently. If there is evidence of moderate contralateral disease or recurrent stenosis, scanning may be performed at 6–12 month intervals (29). Shunting or Not No randomized trials have been conducted that demonstrate superiority of shunting (30), although routine shunt insertion is known to have low perioperative death and stroke rates (31).
