Carotid body saving techniques in carotid artery surgery

Roman Vinogradov; Vyacheslav Matusevich;

A comparative study of the results of surgical treatment in two groups of patients with unilateral asymptomatic stenoses of the internal carotid artery from 70% to 95% was performed. Patients from the experimental group underwent surgical interventions with preservation of the carotid glomus, the patients of the control group underwent carotid endarterectomy by the eversion method. Patients entered the study. Patients in the groups had identical concomitant pathologies, were similar in age and general condition. During the first days, a positive effect of surgical interventions on bifurcation of the common carotid artery performed with the preservation of the carotid body was noted, which manifested itself in a decrease in the frequency of episodes of hypertensive crises and in the normalization of systolic and mean arterial pressure.
