abstract

  • This review suggests that repeat carotid endarterectomy can be performed safely in individuals with severe recurrent carotid stenosis, with morbidity and mortality rates similar to those for patients undergoing first-time carotid endarterectomies. For this population, reoperative carotid endarterectomy represents a safe and important mechanism for the prevention of stroke.
