    Southern Association for Vascular Surgery. Annual meeting. Scottsdale AZ USA, 1994/01/26.


    We examined the clinical and financial outcomes of case management coupled with the initiation of selective use of the intensive care unit (ICU) in all cerebral revascularization procedures.


    Three hundred eighty-four procedures in 331 patients were retrospectively reviewed.

    Morbidity and mortality rates, hospital length of stay, cost, and ICU or hospital readmissions were examined.

    Hypertension was examined as an independent variable for its effect on patient outcome.


    Cerebral revascularization, including carotid endarterectomy, vertebral-carotid artery transposition, and subclavian-carotid artery transposition, yielded a 0.78% stroke rate and 0.26% perioperative death rate in this series.
