Combined Carotid and Coronary Artery Disease
- 6 Downloads
Concomitant coronary and carotid artery disease is reported in 14% patients scheduled for coronary artery bypass grafting. However, when to surgically intervene on the carotid lesion is a controversial issue. Both concomitant and staged procedures have their proponents and opponents alike. In this chapter we present our argument for a selective approach towards carotid artery screening. We also provide a synopsis of accepted management strategies for patients with concomitant carotid and coronary artery disease and outline contemporary outcomes.
