Dynamics of neurological recovery was assessed in 121 patients with atherosclerotic stenosis of the internal carotid arteries suffered from stroke. Patients underwent carotid endarterectomy that was carried out from 1 month to 5 years after stroke. Somatic, neurologic and neuropsychological state, as well as functional characteristics and quality of life were assessed, and utrasound testing of the brachiocephalic arteries and neuroimaging studies were carried out. After carotid endarterectomy, significant decrease in the severity of focal neurological symptoms and cognitive impairment, increase in quality of life and functional improvement was registered. Post-operatively, ischemic events occurred in 2.5% of patients.
