Asymptomatic carotid artery stenosis is associated with cerebral hypoperfusion.

We have revealed that virtually 50% of patients with asymptomatic carotid stenosis will show cognitive disability. Carotid stenosis can limit blood circulation to the brain, with ensuing analytical hypoperfusion. It is, as a result, essential to develop a medically relevant measure of net brain perfusion in patients with ACS that might help in danger stratification and in figuring out the suitable treatment. To determine whether ACS leads to analytical hypoperfusion, we developed an unique approach to evaluate interhemispheric analytical perfusion distinctions, determined as the time to optimal and mean transportation time delays making use of perfusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging of the entire brain.
