Regional anesthesia generally has been satisfactory in performing carotid endarterectomy as reviewed in a previous five-year experience from Walter Reed Army Medical Center. The results are comparable to other reported series with no operating room deaths, an overall operative mortality of 2.6 per cent, and an incidence of transient neurological deficits of 3.0 per cent with permanent neurological deficits in 2.2 per cent.
