Dampening of blood-flow pulsatility along the carotid siphon: does form follow function?

Abstract

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The tortuous distal part of the ICA may have an attenuating effect on pulsatile arterial flow. We investigated local arterial blood flow patterns in the ICA proximal and distal to the carotid siphon to detect quantitative waveform changes. MATERIALS AND METHODS Arterial flow patterns were analyzed by using flow-sensitized 4D PC MR… (More)
