Kürşad Öz1, Safa Göde1, Burak Onan1
1Department of Cardiovascular Surgery, University of Health Sciences, İstanbul Mehmet Akif Ersoy Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery Training ad Research Hospital, İstanbul, Turkey Carotid endarterectomy is the procedure of choice in the surgical treatment of atherosclerotic disease of carotid arteries to prevent ischemic and embolic cerebral complications. Traditionally, carotid endarterectomy is performed using primary repair, patch plasty and eversion endarterectomy techniques. We present a novel technique of carotid endarterectomy that preserves vessel continuity without stenosis, avoids the use of autologous or synthetic patches, and ensures complete endarterectomy. Keywords : Arterioplasty; carotid artery stenosis; endarterectomy
