Eversion Carotid Endarterectomy Video

I had the fortune of seeing and assisting on over 10 Eversion Carotid Endarterectomy (eCEA) while rotating in China. I was starred in a video created to that demonstrates this procedure from beginning to end, particularly how to sew the back wall of an end-to-side ICA to CCA anastomosis so the repaired suture lines are facing towards outside of the anastomosis. Obviously, if the suture line faces into the lumen of the repaired vessels, it would create a stenotic waist at the takeoff of ICA. No textbook demonstrates how to do this well. Enjoy!
