Older experimentation suggested that heparin at 5000 units was advantageous in preventing thromboembolic complications. However, in AQ2 the last several thousand carotid endarterectomies, this dose of heparin has been reduced to 3000 without any increased risk of embolic complications and clearly less bleeding postoperatively. This is now especially important when considering discharge of the patient the day after the operation. II Surgical Revascularization Techniques ◆ Carotid Endarterectomy 38 The patient’s head is slightly extended and rotated to the side opposite the surgeon.

As the benefits and efficacy of stereotactic radiosurgery have become increasingly clear, fewer tumors are being treated with radically aggressive resection that would necessitate intentional vascular occlusion. indd 17 front wall (C), back wall (D), and completed anastomosis (E) shown.

As described above, typically the S-shaped incision for a carotid endarterectomy can be used, but it is often necessary to extend it behind the ear toward the mastoid versus curving anteriorly in front of the ear to mobilize the parotid gland. It is important to recognize that the parotid gland, if dissected free, should be retracted anterosuperiorly and in that way help prevent injury to the lower branches of the facial nerve.
