Abstract

Endarterectomy of the carotid bifurcation through a longitudinal arteriotomy of the common and internal carotid arteries followed by a direct closure is still accepted as the main surgical technique for carotid stenoses. However, this technique is complicated in about 10% of the cases by a restenosis. Mechanisms of myointimal hyperplasia leading to restenosis are not completely explained. The technique of eversion endarterectomy of the internal carotid artery has been said to be an alternate technique which could decrease the incidence of restenosis. We described the three main techniques of eversion endarterectomy and their results. The technique of eversion endarterectomy after proximal section of the internal carotid artery is the most frequently used. It allows to treat easily length excess of the internal carotid artery. Its results are good in terms of neurologic morbidity and mortality. However, randomized comparative studies are still required in order to determine its role on the incidence of restenosis despite the first encouraging results of first non comparative studies. The technique of eversion endarterectomy after distal section of the internal carotid artery has been proposed by Chevalier who reported also good short term results and no delayed restenosis.
