PURPOSE This open single-center prospective study aimed to determine the redistribution of blood flow within the circle of Willis and through collateral pathways after carotid endarterectomy. Blood flow velocity and flow direction in the major cerebral arteries were determined, both at rest and during CO(2) inhalation. METHODS Carotid endarterectomy was performed in 148 patients with a 70% or greater diameter stenosis of the internal carotid artery while patients were under general anesthesia… CONTINUE READING
