BACKGROUND Hyperperfusion syndrome (HPS) is a critical complication after carotid artery stenting (CAS) and carotid endarterectomy (CEA). OBJECTIVE To identify predictors of HPS before and immediately after CAS. METHODS We analyzed patients who underwent elective CAS from 2005 to 2008, and underwent single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) and transcranial color-coded real-time sonography before and immediately after CAS. HPS was defined as post-CAS deteriorating neurological… CONTINUE READING
