Presented herein are the results of cerebral oximetry in the assessment of the indication for brain protection during operations of carotid endarterectomy in a total of forty-eight patients presenting with carotid artery stenoses. It was determined that cerebral oximetry gives an insight into the degree of efficacy of the collateral blood flow along both hemispheres, and by virtue of its integral approach to the assessment of cerebral blood flow is an important criterion in determining the indications for brain protection during carotid endarterectomy.

KEY WORDS: carotid endarterectomy, cerebral oxygenation.
