Abstract

Purpose: The purpose of this review was to determine outcomes for combined carotid endarterectomy (CEA) and coronary revascularization (CABG) in patients with asymptomatic carotid stenosis. Methods: We reviewed the medical records of consecutive combined procedures (CEA and CABG), performed at UCLA Medical Center from October, 1989 to January, 1999.Findings: There were 43 patients, 27 men and 16 women, with a mean age of 71 yr (range 51-87). Thirty-four patients 79% (34/43) had asymptomatic carotid stenosis. Stroke occurred in three patients (3/43=6.9%). Stroke ipsilateral to the CEA occurred in two patients: one asymptomatic (1/34=2.9%) and one symptomatic (1/9=11.1%). Conclusions: The majority of patients undergoing combined CEA/CABG have asymptomatic carotid stenosis identified in preparation for elective CABG. The asymptomatic carotid subset stroke rate of 2.9% resulting from a combined CEA/CABG is higher than our reported rate for CEA performed alone. In patients with asymptomatic carotid stenosis, the combined procedure should be selectively performed.
