RESULTS: Early mortality for the entire group was 4.6% (9/195-6.2% in group A, 6.2% in group B1 and 0% in group B2, respectively P > 0.05). Serious morbidity occurred in 7.3% of patients (14/195-8.3% in group A, 7.2% in group B1 and 6% in group B, respectively P > 0.05). Univariate analysis revealed only bilateral carotid stenosis as a predictor of outcome (P = 0.04). Follow-up was completed for 156 patients (80.0%) and averaged 84.1 +/- 13.3 months (range 1-180 months). Kaplan-Meier survival estimate for the entire group was 81% and event-free survival was 76% at 5 years. Actuarial and event-free survivals were similar for all groups. Early and late outcome in these patients were influenced more by their preoperative clinical status than by the surgical strategy itself. It is therefore concluded that surgical approach should be individualized for the majority of patients.
