Abstract

eGFR and Cr classes are not a dependable method in evaluating postoperative complications risk after CEA in asymptomatic patients, although preoperative eGFR values influence 30-days morbility. Both eGFR and Cr groups are reliable predictors to discriminate among asymptomatic patients candidates for CEA, based on their life expectancy.
