Carotisendarteriektomie

Zusammenfassung

Auf die Möglichkeit einer Verursachung von Hirninfarkten durch Veränderungen an der Carotis ist schon früh hingewiesen worden [20, 50, 74]. Stärkere Beachtung konnte dieser pathogenetische Mechanismus allerdings erst nach der Invention der zerebralen Angiographie durch Moniz gewinnen [66]. Als Meilenstein in der Geschichte der Schlaganfallforschung gilt die Arbeit von C. Miller Fisher aus dem Jahre 1951, in der er anhand von 8 Kasuistiken eine kausale Beziehung zwischen Carotisverschluss und Hirninfarkt nachwies [63]. 7 von diesen 8 Fällen hatten prodromale Symptome im Sinne von TIA.
