[en] A series of 73 simultaneous carotid and coronary revascularizations (Group I) is presented (January 1980-December 1988). Age, sex, risk factors, severity of angina, coronarography, neurological symptoms, angiographic carotid lesions and operative outcome of these 73 patients are compared with the aspects of 3544 coronary bypass patients (Group II) and 1001 carotid endarterectomized patients (Group III) during the same period. The angina in Group I is more severe, with 22% belonging to NYHA class IV and 26% having a stenosis of the left main coronary artery, vs 14% and 13% in Group II. Seventy percent of the carotid lesions in Group I are asymptomatic vs 33% in Group III. Group I patients had more problems in the perioperative period, with 16.4% needing prolonged high-doses analeptics and 5.4% intraaortic counterpulsation balloon. Operative mortality is higher (7%) in Group I compared with Group II (2.3%) and Group III (1.7%). These results permit to define a population of polyvascular patients with concomitant coronary and carotid disease, characterized by a more diffuse atherosclerosis and a higher operative risk. Operative morbidity and mortality after combined myocardial and cerebral revascularization remains nevertheless inferior to the cumulated surgical risk of the sequential procedures (74 patients with coexistant coronary and carotid lesions operated in two sessions before 1986).
