Abstract [en]

OBJECTIVE: In large randomized trials, carotid endarterectomy (CEA) for asymptomatic stenosis has shown a net benefit compared with best medical treatment. To justify an increased number of procedures for this indication, the perioperative risk of stroke or death must not exceed that of the trials. The aim of this study was to evaluate the outcome in routine clinical practice in Sweden in a population-based study. METHODS: The Swedish Vascular Registry (Swedvasc) covers all centers performing CEA. Data on all registered CEAs during 1994 to 2003 were analyzed both for the whole time period and for two 5-year periods to study alterations over time. Four validation procedures of the registry were performed. Medical records were reviewed for both a random sample and a target sample (a total of 12% of the CEAs for asymptomatic stenosis). Swedvasc data were cross-matched with the In-Patient-Registry (used for reimbursement) and the Population-registry (death). RESULTS: A total of 6182 CEAs were registered, 671 being for asymptomatic stenosis. In the validation process, no missed registration of major stroke or death was found. Patients with asymptomatic stenosis had, when the whole time-period was analyzed, a perioperative combined stroke or death rate of 2.1%. Outcome improved over time; the combined stroke or death rate decreased from 3.3% (11/330) from 1994 to 1998 to 0.9% (3/341) from 1999 to 2003 (P = .026). During the second time period, no patient with a perioperative major stroke or death was reported. CONCLUSIONS: This extensively validated national audit of CEA for patients with asymptomatic carotid artery stenosis showed results well comparable with those of the randomized trials. The results improved over time.

Abstract [en]

Randomised controlled trials (RCT) have demonstrated a net benefit of carotid endarterectomy (CEA) in stroke prevention for patients with severe carotid artery stenosis as compared to best medical treatment. Results in routine clinical practice must not be inferior to those in the RCTs. The carotid arteries are clamped during CEA which may impair the cerebral perfusion.

The aim of this thesis was to assess population-based outcomes from CEA, investigate risk factors for perioperative complications/late mortality and to evaluate effects of carotid clamping during CEA. In the Swedish vascular registry 6182 CEAs were registered during 1994-2003. Data on all CEAs were retrieved, analysed and validated. In the validation process no death or disabling stroke was unreported. The perioperative stroke or death rate was 4.3% for those with symptomatic and 2.1% for asymptomatic stenosis (the latter decreasing over time). Risk factors for perioperative complications were age, indication, diabetes, cardiac disease and contralateral occlusion. Median survival time was 10.8 years for the symptomatic and 10.2 years for the asymptomatic group.

Tolerance to carotid clamping during CEA under general anaesthesia was evaluated in 62 patients measuring cerebral oximetry, transit time volume flowmetry and stump pressure. High internal carotid artery flow before clamping and low stump pressure was associated with decreased oxygenation after clamping suggesting shunt indication.

In 18 patients undergoing CEA, jugular bulb blood samples demonstrated significantly altered levels of marker for inflammatory activation (IL-6) and fibrinolytic activity (D-dimer and PAI-1) during carotid clamping as compared to radial artery levels. This indicates a cerebral ischaemia due to clamping although clinically well tolerated.

In conclusion, the perioperative outcome after CEA in Sweden compared well with the RCTs results. Tolerance to carotid clamping may be evaluated by combining stump pressure and volume flow measurements. Although clinically tolerated clamping may induce a cerebral ischaemic response.
