Selection criteria for CABG-CEA greatly influence perioperative risk. Despite the greater age and more advanced coronary artery disease in the CABG-CEA group, long-term outcome differences are accounted for entirely by differences in perioperative morbidity and mortality. Prospective trials of strategies such as staged CEA and CABG to reduce perioperative risk are needed.
