BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Significant extracranial stenosis of the ICA is a known risk factor for future stroke and it has been shown that revascularization reduces the risk of future stroke. We applied BOLD fMRI in patients with carotid artery stenosis before and after CEA. Our purpose was to determine whether fMRI is able to demonstrate impaired CVR and to identify patient parameters that are associated with postoperative changes of cerebral hemodynamics.
