Simultaneous carotid endarterectomy and coronary artery bypass surgery in Canada.

Abstract:
Stroke neurologists are commonly asked to review patients who require coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) but who also have comorbid severe carotid stenosis; such patients may be offered simultaneous carotid endarterectomy (CEA). In Canada, 0.51% of CABG procedures were combined CEA-CABG. The adjusted stroke and death rate was 2.67-fold greater in the combined CEA-CABG group compared to CABG alone. Randomized trials of the combined procedure are needed.
