BACKGROUND AND AIM Carotid artery disease may cause both thromboembolism and cerebral blood flow disturbances, particularly in subjects with impaired hemodynamic compensatory mechanisms. The aim of this study was to evaluate by transcranial Doppler (TCD) the hemodynamic changes induced by CO2 and L-Arginine stimulation in a selected population with severe unilateral carotid stenosis (70-80%), before and after carotid endarterectomy, in order to determine the effect of surgery in the vascular… CONTINUE READING
