Objective: This study compares internal carotid artery (ICA) mean stump pressures (SPs) with cerebral oximetry monitoring during carotid endarterectomy (CEA). Methods: A total of 104 consecutive patients undergoing CEA under general anesthesia (GA) during a 10-month period were prospectively evaluated. Baseline and postcarotid clamp regional cerebral oxygen saturation (rSO2) and mean ICA SPs were measured. Demographic, surgical, and medical variables were recorded for each case. Results: There were no postoperative strokes. Thirteen patients were excluded because of incomplete data. Of the 40 patients who had 2, 6 had SP 2 is neither sensitive nor specific in detecting patients with mean SP
