A two-channel standard laser Doppler perfusion monitor has been adapted for intracerebral measurements. Software developed in Labview makes it possible to present the microvascular perfusion, total light intensity (TLI), heart rate and trend curves in real-time during surgery. A custom-made optical probe was designed in order to enable easy fixation during(More)
The aim of this study was to adapt and evaluate laser Doppler perfusion monitoring (LDPM) together with custom-designed brain probes and software for continuous recording of cerebral microcirculation in patients undergoing neurosurgery. The LDPM system was used to record perfusion and backscattered light (TLI). These parameters were displayed together with(More)
BACKGROUND Laser Doppler flowmetry (LDF) can be used to measure cerebral microcirculation in relation to stereotactic deep brain stimulation (DBS) implantations. OBJECTIVE To investigate the microcirculation and total light intensity (TLI) corresponding to tissue grayness in DBS target regions with high-resolution LDF recordings, and to define a(More)
Diffuse reflectance spectroscopy (DRS) can be used to estimate oxygen saturation (SO<sub>2</sub>) of hemoglobin and blood fraction (f<sub>B</sub>) in brain tissue. The aim of the study was to investigate the SO<sub>2</sub> and f<sub>B</sub> in different positions along deep brain stimulation (DBS) trajectories and in specific target regions using DRS and a(More)
The cerebral microcirculation consists of a complex network of small blood vessels that support nerve cells with oxygen and nutrition. The blood flow and oxygen delivery in the microcirculatory blood vessels are regulated through mechanisms which may be influenced or impaired by disease or brain damage resulting from conditions such as brain tumors,(More)
Continuous measurement of local brain oxygen saturation (SO2 ) can be used to monitor the status of brain trauma patients in the neurocritical care unit. Currently, micro-oxygen-electrodes are considered as the "gold standard" in measuring cerebral oxygen pressure (pO2 ), which is closely related to SO2 through the oxygen dissociation curve (ODC) of(More)
