Velocity wave form analysis (VWFA) was carried out on 75 velocity tracings recorded from the common carotid artery with a continuous wave Doppler. Grouped according to clinical status, there were 20 young "normals" (I), 18 old "normals" (II), 15 stenoses of less than 50% diameter (III), 13 stenoses of greater than 50% (IV), and nine complete occlusions (V). Five of the nine dimesnions analyzed were found to be more discriminating than the others. Using these dimensions in an equation derived by… CONTINUE READING
