Hi,
Your document is not sufficient enough to explain that why Cardiopulmonary bypass was created to perform thromboendarterectomy and patch graft placement on carotid artery. Usually, Cardiopulmonary bypass is created on surgeries performed on heart vessels, heart wall and valves. If a temporary vascular shunt or bypass was performed on the area of incision to allow blood to continue to flow during the thromboendarterectomy then it is included in the primary procedure.
