Abstract OBJECTIVES: Routine patch angioplasty has been advocated following carotid endarterectomy but patching can be associated with complications. This study assesses the effect of a selective patching policy based on distal internal carotid diameter on the rate of restenosis and outcome following carotid endarterectomy. DESIGN, MATERIAL AND METHODS: A consecutive series of 213 patients underwent carotid endarterectomy performed by one surgeon. Preoperative carotid dimensions were measured intraoperatively using calipers. Following endarterectomy a 5mm Dacron patch was selectively employed if the distal internal carotid was 5mm or less (group 1, 95 patients) or 6mm or less (group 2, 118 patients). Patients underwent colour-coded Duplex scanning at 24 h, 1 week, 3, 6, 9, and 12 months, and yearly following this. RESULTS: Overall 27 restenoses (5 residual) of 50\% or greater and two occlusions developed. Patching was performed in 47\% of group 1 and 61\% of group 2 arteries. In group 1 14\% of patched compared with 24\% of non-patched arteries developed restenosis at 24 months (p=0.4). In group 2 13\% of patched compared to 11\% of non-patched arteries developed restenosis at 12 months (p>0.5). Stroke rate at 24 months were similar for patched and non-patched patients in groups 1 (p>0.5) and 2 (p=0.4). CONCLUSIONS: This study suggests that patch angioplasty of larger carotid arteries may be unnecessary. Randomisation of larger arteries between patch and primary closure would be required to confirm this.
