The Role of Perfusion Computed Tomography in the Prediction of Cerebral Hyperperfusion Syndrome

Abstract

BACKGROUND Hyperperfusion syndrome (HPS) following carotid angioplasty with stenting (CAS) is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. At present, there are no reliable parameters to predict HPS. The aim of this study was to clarify whether perfusion computed tomography (CT) is a feasible and reliable tool in predicting HPS after CAS… (More)
