BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The importance of hemodynamic changes related to a high-grade internal carotid artery (ICA) stenosis remains a matter of controversy. Areas between the vascular territories of major cerebral arteries, namely, the border zones, may be selectively vulnerable to hemodynamic alteration. The aim of this study was to search for any hemodynamic impact of carotid endarterectomy (CEA) on vasodilatory response, in particular, within the border zones, by means of multislice dynamic… CONTINUE READING
