Carotid Plaque Evaluations by Carotid Duplex Ultrasound in Ischemic Stroke
허혈성 뇌졸중에서 경동맥 이중 초음파를 이용한 경동맥 죽상판 평가
Abstract
Carotid endarterectomy (CEA) is performed in selected patient with carotid stenosis groups to prevent stroke. Symptomatology and degree of stenosis are the main clinical consideration to perform CEA. However, many patients undergo surgery without adequate evaluation of individual risk. There is therefore a need for adjuvant methods to identify high-risk subgroups of patients who particularly benefit from potentially hazardous interventions. Rapid progress in ultrasound techniques and increasing knowledge of methodology promise expending the territory of clinical applications for the assessment of cerebrovascular diseases.
