Özet

Objective: Due to their close proximity to the carotid sinus baroreceptor region, carotid endarterectomy (CEA) and carotid angioplasty/stenting (CAS) carry an inherent risk of affecting baroreflex-mediated regulation of the heart rate. Variations in the heart rate can be studied by measuring heart rate variability (HRV), in which distinct frequency bands in the power spectrum represent sympathetic and parasympathetic modulations on sinus node pacemaker activity. We aimed to investigate the influence of CEA and CAS on HRV.
