TCD in the intensive care and complications of SAH-patients

FULL TEXT  


Transcranial Doppler (TCD) is at present the only exam to allow non-invasive, bedside monitoring of cerebral vasospasm after SAH. The high temporal resolution of this technique enables detection of fast flow-velocity changes occurring in intracranial arteries, as well as evaluation of vasomotive reserve and strength of autoregulation. TCD results concerning cerebral vasospasm evaluation are comparable to those obtained in angiographic studies; however the correlation between TCD data and clinical status is not always so strict. This difference could be explained by the fact that TCD measures flow velocity and not flow in intracranial vessels.
