Anesthetic management of carotid artery disease requiring carotid endarterectomy or carotid stenting is complex and varies widely, but relies on excellent communication between the anesthesia and surgical team throughout the procedure to ensure appropriate cerebral perfusion. With a systematic approach to vascular access and hemodynamic and neurologic monitoring, anesthesia can be applied to maximize cerebral perfusion while minimizing the risk of postoperative hemorrhage or hyperperfusion.
