Doppler-derived indices of cerebral blood flow velocity (CBFV) and echocardiographic parameters of left ventricular function were measured in 18 patients with hypoxic-ischaemic encephalopathy HIE (group I) and in 28 normal controls (group II). Group-I infants had a subnormal distribution of CBFV values increasing over the first 85 h postnatally. CBFV values were constantly higher in the internal carotid than in the anterior cerebral artery. During the first 24 h postnatally, pulsatility and… CONTINUE READING
