BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Transcranial color-coded duplex sonography (TCCS) allows the noninvasive, easily reproducible measurement of midline dislocation (MLD) of the third ventricle in space-occupying stroke, even in critically ill patients. However, the method has been validated only in a small number of subjects. The aim of this study was to test the method under clinical conditions. METHODS In 61 prospectively recruited patients (mean age, 62+/-15 years) with supratentorial ischemic… CONTINUE READING
