Measurement of cortical microcirculation during intracranial aneurysm surgery by combined laser-Doppler flowmetry and photospectrometry.


BACKGROUND Accidental vessel occlusion is one major risk of intracranial aneurysm surgery potentially causing cerebral ischemia. The intraoperative assessment of cerebral ischemia remains a technological challenge. OBJECTIVE As a novel approach, cortical tissue integrity was monitored using simultaneous measurements of regional capillary-venous cerebral… (More)
