Presented herein are 6-month-to-6-year remote outcomes of using dilating polytetrafluoroethylene patches, an autovein, and a xenopericardium treated with diepoxy compounds in course of carotid endarterectomy in a total of 198 patients. The patients’ age and degree of cerebrovascular insufficiency according to A.V. Pokrovskii’s classification were virtually identical in all the three groups studied.

The incidence rate of restenoses in the group of dilating polytetrafluoroethylene patches turned out significantly higher.

Based on the findings of our study, it is safe to conclude that the xenopericardium treated with diepoxy compounds is an efficient and safe plastic material in surgery of carotid arteries.

KEY WORDS: carotid artery, carotid endarterectomy.
