Asymptomatic carotid artery stenosis is associated with cerebral hypoperfusion.

Cognitive impairment in nearly half of patients with asymptomatic carotid stenosis will present cognitive impairment. It is, therefore, critical to create a clinically useful indicator of net brain perfusion in patients with ACS, which may aid in risk stratification and decision of the appropriate therapy. We developed a novel way to determine whether ACS findings in cerebral hypoperfusion, as the time to peak and mean transit time delays were determined using perfusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging of the whole brain.
