Symptoms and Signs of Carotid Territory Transient Cerebral Ischaemia

In 400 patients referred for non-invasive vascular assessment by ultrasono graphy, 29% of 214 with transient ischaemic attacks, 25% of 44 with reversible ischaemic neurological deficits and 28% of 46 with recovered stroke had signifi cant extracranial internal carotid artery disease. For amaurosis fugax, 65% of 74 patients had significant disease. Both cerebral and ocular symptoms of simi lar laterality with respect to one carotid occurred together in 22 patients, of whom 86% had significant internal carotid disease. Bruit was heard in 29% of carotids in 200 symptomatic patients. Only 45% of bruits were associated with significant internal carotid disease. The external carotid alone was shown to be the source of cervical murmur in a significant number of patients. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Vascular and Endovascular Surgery SAGE
