  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

The authors investigated the hemodynamics and monitored the cerebral function to perform the carotid endarterectomy (CEA) safely. The hemodynamics were investigated by measurements of carotid arterial blood flow by an electromagnetic flow meter before and after CEA. And a doppler flow meter applied directly to the carotid arteries to analyze the flow parameters such as peak frequencies (PF), mean frequencies (MF), mode frequencies (Mo F) and % window. We used routinely our specially designed shunt system during surgery, by which stump pressure of the ICA could be measured easily.
