The authors assessed efficacy of eversion carotid endarterectomy and its effect on dynamics of the oxygen status of the brain and quality of life of 122 patients at terms from 6 months to 4 years after surgical treatment. It was shown that positive effect from the operation is preserved in 94% of cases, lethality in the remote terms amounted to less than 1%, acute impairment of cerebral circulation on the side of revascularization was regis- tered in 2.5% of cases, haemodynamically significant restenoses in the zone of vascular reconstruction in 2.5%. Revascularization results in increased efficacy of the oxygen supply of the brain and the level of quality of life, including in patients with a history of ischaemic stroke.

KEY WORDS: carotid endarterectomy, oxygen state of the brain, quality of life.
