[Contralateral occlusion of the internal carotid artery in the study of carotid stenosis using Doppler ultrasonography].

Abstract

INTRODUCTION AND AIMS The degree of stenosis measured by Doppler ultrasonography in patients with contralateral occlusion of the internal carotid artery (ICA) is assumed to be overestimated. We propose to measure the extent to which this phenomenon affects the capacity of Doppler ultrasonography to classify stenoses. PATIENTS AND METHODS A retrospective… (More)
