  • Poor agreement in carotid artery stenosis detection by ultrasound between external offices and a vascular center. Giurgea, Georgiana-Aura; Lilaj, Ilda; Gschwandtner, Michael E.; Margeta, Christian; Zehetmayer, Sonja; Domenig, Christoph; Schlager, Oliver; Schwameis, Michael; Koppensteiner, Renate; Willfort-Ehringer, Andrea // Wiener Klinische Wochenschrift;Nov2012, Vol. 124 Issue 21/22, p769 

    Background: Carotid duplex ultrasonography is the prime investigation used to grade carotid artery stenosis in clinical routine. We compared the carotid ultrasound (US) scans performed externally with our results. Materials and methods: This retrospective study included 288 patients who had been...

    Purpose: To develop customized duplex ultrasound criteria for assessment of in-stent restenosis in the carotid arteries. Methods: A retrospective review was conducted of 605 patients who underwent carotid artery stenting (CAS) from July 1996 to August 2004 at a single institution. Data on the...

    Objective: Free-floating thrombus (FFT) of the carotid artery is a rare condition of currently unknown etiology. Less than 150 cases have been described in the published world literature to date. Design and Setting: We present 6 consecutive cases of carotid FFT, identified prospectively from...

  • Ultrasonography and contrast-enhanced MRA in ICA-stenosis: is conventional angiography obsolete? Friese, Sigrid; Krapf, Hilmar; Fetter, Michael; Klose, Uwe; Skalej, Martin; K√ľker, Wilhelm // Journal of Neurology;Jun2001, Vol. 248 Issue 6, p506 

    Background The standard techniques for the screening and staging of internal carotid artery (ICA) stenosis are Doppler (continuous wave) and Duplex sonography. For the imaging of ICA occlusive disease, magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) is replacing digital subtraction angiography (DSA). The...

    Background and aims. Many studies have reported the benefits of carotid endarterectomy (CEA) contralateral to an occluded internal carotid artery (ICA), with varying results. This study analyzed perioperative and late outcomes in a recent trial in which patients were randomized to carotid...

    Carotid duplex ultrasonography (DUS) is routinely performed prior to coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG) on all patients > 65 years old because of the reported associated risk of finding concomitant carotid artery stenosis. Identifying risk factors that correlate with severe carotid...

William; Long, Graham W.; Zelenock, Gerald B.; Shanley, Charles J. // Vascular & Endovascular Surgery;May/Jun2005, Vol. 39 Issue 3, p237 

    It remains a significant technical challenge for duplex ultrasound to accurately differentiate between total and near total internal carotid artery (ICA) occlusions. We have evaluated the efficacy of an ultrasound contrast agent combined with improved imaging techniques in patients with...
