Carotid balloon angioplasty and stenting has been suggested to be a safer and more cost-effective alternative to carotid endarterectomy for the management of carotid artery stenosis, especially in high risk patients or poor candidates for standard carotid endarterectomy. We conducted anesthetic management in patients receiving carotid balloon angioplasty and stenting. General anesthesia was performed in 2 cases and anesthesia care was monitored in 5 cases to ensure hemodynamic stability. No severe complications such as major stroke occurred during the procedures. One case with monitored anesthesia care showed a rapid decrease in arterial pressure and transient bradycardia during balloon inflation, but these immediately resolved.
Key Words: anesthetic management; carotid angioplasty; carotid stenting
