ABSTRACT

Significant carotid artery stenosis (CAS) is an important incremental risk factor for the development of perioperative neurologic injury following coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG).[1] Highly prevalent noteworthy clinical characteristics included hypertension (66.6%), a history of smoking (52.8%), elevated LDL-C (41.5%), TDM (35.1%), elevated triglyceride (34.7%), a history of myocardial infarction (32.9%), and elevated T. Cholesterol (16.2%). Incidence of carotid artery stenosis(CAS) in CABG patients has been shown that significant. Studies say the incidence of significant carotid artery stenosis in patients referred for isolated CABG is 36%. This is consistent with previous studies which have reported a prevalence of 6.1%-31.7% in CABG patients depending upon definitions of the degree of stenosis and methods of screening. For severe carotid stenosis >75%, the prevalence has been reported to be 4.1%-13.3% which also remains consistent with our findings of >; 70% stenosis in 8.8% of patients.[2] Objective: To check the incidence and risk factors of carotid disease in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting surgery.
