ABSTRACT
Statistical studies were made of externally recorded carotid pulse curves in occlusive disease of the carotid arteries. Previously observed changes reflecting various peripheral arterial conditions as well as changes apparently specific to the occlusion were noted. The ‘percussion wave time’ was shortened both absolutely and in relation to ejection time in cases of bilateral occlusive carotid arterial disease. However, overlap of the measurements in normal and abnormal arteries was wide, making the ‘percussion wave time’ not yet feasible for use as a diagnostic criterion for occlusive disease for the present. Further studies of carotid artery pulse curves may pave the way to the establishment of a clinically useful evaluation of the functional status of the carotid arteries and may possibly yield a criterion for the diagnosis of carotid artery occlusive disease.

    Common carotid artery (CCA) occlusion is sometimes associated with collateral flow through carotid bulb that preserves patency of internal carotid artery (ICA). Usually ipsilateral external carotid artery (ECA) anastomotic branches supply the ICA. But in this case, we found the contralateral ECA...
