abstract

  • The results of 250 eversion carotid endarterectomies (ECEAs) in 227 consecutive patients in 1 institution were evaluated. The outcomes of 250 consecutive ECEAs at North Shore University Hospital by a single surgeon, between January 1998 and August 2001, were recorded prospectively. In the single series of 250 ECEAs the 30-day operative mortality was 0.4% and the perioperative stroke rate was 0.8%. During a mean follow-up of 23 months, the recurrent stenosis rate was 0.8%. A reduction in stroke and mortality rates is often observed with ECEA.
