The lucid interval in stroke following carotid endarterectomy


, : The lucid interval in stroke following carotid endarterectomy. American Surgeon 51(2): 114-115

In 789 carotid endarterectomies, there were 39 neurologic deficits in 543 cases (7.1%) performed with a shunt and nine neurologic deficits in 246 cases (3.7%) performed without a shunt in a community where surgeons were divided and inflexible with regard to the use of shunts. In the cases performed without a shunt, seven of the nine neurologic deficits were preceded by a lucid interval, suggesting that the use of a shunt might have benefitted no more than two cases in this group. The mortality related to deficits following a lucid interval was 44 per cent, whereas the mortality of immediate deficit was 13 per cent. This supports a policy of immediate operation for stroke following a lucid interval.

Although it is recognized that carotid endarterectomy (CEA) is the treatment of choice in symptomatic internal carotid artery (ICA) stenosis, in the past, very early CEA has been shown to carry substantial risks. We assessed an interdisciplinary c...
