Abstract: 

Introduction: Carotid stenosis is the most common cause of crebrovascular accidents. If we select the patients appropriately, carotid endarterectomy would be acceptable regarding to mortality and morbidity for vascular complications. Since, carotid endarterectomy related complication is dependent on experience, equipment and facilities of surgical team, each surgical ward should be evaluated for complication separetely.
Objective: Evaluating the postoperative mortality and morbidity and complication of carotid endarterectomy in patients with carotid stenosis in surgical wards of Razi Hospital in Rasht during September 2006 until end of February 2010.
Materials and Methods: In this descriptive study, 51 patients undergoing carotid endarterectomy in surgical wards of Razi Hospital were recruited. Postoprative complications, mortality and morbidity of carotid endarterectomy were recorded during hospitalization and one month follow up period after discharge.
Results: The mean age of patients was 66.69
±10.33.35 subjects of patients were male and 16 subjects of patients were female. Mortality was reported in one case (%1.96), complication in asymptomatic patient was (%1.96), in symptomatic patient with Transient Ischemic Attack was (1.96%) and in Cerebro Vascular Accident patients was (0%).
Conclusian: Results of this study showed that the rate of mortality and morbidity is acceptable after endarterectomy surgery in Razi hospital in comparison with NASCET. So in order to elevation of quality of surgery in this center, results of surgery should be recorded and analysed every year.
