OBJECTIVE The goal of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and reliability of intraoperative microvascular Doppler sonography (MDS) for the assessment of cerebral haemodynamics in aneurysm surgery. METHODS For 40 patients (21 men, 19 women, mean age 54.0 years, range 23-73 years) who underwent surgery for the treatment of 48 intracranial aneurysms, microvascular Doppler sonography with a 20-MHz microprobe was used before and after clip application, to confirm the complete obliteration of… CONTINUE READING
