Detection of cerebral microemboli by means of transcranial Doppler monitoring before and after carotid endarterectomy.

Abstract

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The main purpose of carotid endarterectomy (CEA) for neurologically symptomatic high-grade extracranial carotid artery stenosis is to remove the suspected source of cerebral microemboli. Transcranial Doppler (TCD) ultrasonography has the potential for detecting solid microemboli in the basal cerebral arteries. Therefore, TCD… (More)
