1Perspective randomized study on eversion carotid endarterectomy : DeBakey-Van Maele technique vs Etheredge technique. Preliminary resultsDOMENICO PALOMBOVascular and Endovascular UnitIRCCS San Martino University Hospital - IST GenoaUniversity of Genoa
3INTRODUCTION Surgical techniques But which technique for the eversion? reduced incidence of restenosis in the group receiving EA for eversion, without finding differences in the incidence of stroke during follow up .But which technique for the eversion?1) Cao P. et al. Eversion versus conventional carotid endarterectomy for preventing stroke (review). The Cochrane Library 2009 issue 4.
10Our studyCAROTID SURGERY A COMPARISON BETWEEN TWO TECHNIQUES A RANDOMIZED PROSPECTIVE STUDY ON RESTENOSIS RATE Domenico Palombo Vascular and Endovascular Unit A.O.U. San Martino – IST Genova Unviversity of Genova
11Our study Technically challenging? Shunting more difficult? Worst end-point visualization?Longer operating and clamping time?Lower re-stenosis rate?
12ObjectiveOUR STUDYThe primary aim of our study is to evaluate and compare the rate of carotid restenosis between two groups of patients that underwent Eversion Endarterectomy.First group eversion DeBakey techniqueVERSUSSecond group eversion Etheredge technique
13ObjectiveOUR STUDYThe secondary aim of our study is to evaluate and compare the rate of morbi-mortality and major neurological complications between two groups of patients that underwent Eversion Endarterectomy.
14Materials and Methods Inclusion criteria: Patients older than 50 years Planned admission to our ward to undergo carotid endarterectomyOUR STUDY
15Materials and Methods Exclusion criteria: Restenosis Hostile neck Anatomical features :Kinking of internal carotid arteryHigh carotid artery bifurcationOUR STUDY
16Materials and Methods TYPE OF TREATMENT OUR STUDY All the patients were administered apreoperatory duplex ultrasound of theCarotid Arteries, in order to establish thefeasibility of both surgeries. Once thepatient was deemed fit for the enlistment,he/she was random assigned to one of thetwo groupsTYPE OF TREATMENTEversion endarterectomyAccording to DeBakeyEversion endarterectomyAccording to Etheredge
17Materials and Methods Personal Data Case history data Perioperatory clinical data: about the state of neck blood vessels (evaluation of near-occlusion/ occlusion or kinking of vertebral and carotid arteries of both sides), possible cerebral symptoms (TIA, amaurosis, stroke), about the surgery (stump pressure, duration of clamping, possible use of shunt, monitoring of blood pressure)Post-operatory clinical dataFollow up: clinical dataFollow up: tecnical dataOUR STUDY
18Materials and Methods RESTENOSIS DEGREE: <50% mild OUR STUDYRESTENOSIS DEGREE:<50% mild≥50%-70% moderate70% a99% seriousReintervention: restenosis >80%This evaluation has been made with duplex ultrasound, using the ECST parameters, and correlating this measurements with PSV
19Materials and MethodsTo calculate the required number of patients it was used the Chi-square statistical test(alfa 0.05, power 80%). The statistical formula used is Pocock’s.NUMBER OF SUBJECTS TO ENLIST136 each group.A total of 272 patients to enlistOUR STUDY
20Materials and Methods Surgical Procedure General Anesthesia Stump Pressure CheckCerebral/Somatic Oximeter (INVOS)Quality control with duplex ultrasound intraoperatively after surgeryOUR STUDY
21Materials and Methods Technically challenging? Shunting more difficult?Worst end-point visualization?Longer operating and clamping time?Lower re-stenosis rate?
