Medical Management. Prevention of progressive carotid occlusive disease and stroke must include aggressive medical management. Hypertension should be controlled with medications to keep the systolic blood pressure less than 160 mm Hg. Patients should stop smoking. Other measures include enforcing glucose control in diabetic patients, lowering serum cholesterol, and pursuing regular exercise. Antiplatelet medications have shown a benefit in preventing stroke, TIA, and death from symptomatic carotid artery disease.
If the patient remains 100% saturated with ambu-bagging, retrograde intubation may be attempted. This is done by inserting an 18-gauge needle through the 37 38 cricothyroid membrane into the airway. A guide-wire (from a central line insertion kit) is then advanced through the needle retrograde into the oropharynx. Using a laryngoscope to visualize the posterior pharynx, the wire is grasped with a Magill forceps and retrieved through the mouth. The endotracheal tube is then threaded onto the wire and advanced into the trachea.
It is thought that the “reversibly ischemic penumbra” benefits from revascularization even in the “hemiplegic comatose patient”. However, a dense neurologic deficit with carotid artery occlusion and a hemispheric infarct still proposes a poor prognosis despite surgical management. Venous injuries are ligated with impunity. Esophageal injuries should be primarily repaired and drained with a soft flexible drain. Tracheal injuries are also primarily repaired. Tracheostomy placement is based on level of injury but is not commonly required.
