OBJECTIVE The goal was to determine the influence of the degree of internal carotid artery (ICA) stenosis and collateral pathways on cerebral vasoreactivity (CVR). The effect of carotid endarterectomy on CVR is also presented. METHODS For 36 patients with unilateral ICA stenosis of at least 70%, regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) and regional CVR (rCVR) were investigated before and after carotid endarterectomy, with resting and acetazolamide-challenge single photon emission computed… CONTINUE READING
