Transcranial Doppler ultrasonography during cardiopulmonary bypass in patients with severe carotid stenosis or occlusion

Stroke; a Journal of Cerebral Circulation
G M von ReuternV Schlosser


Blood flow velocity of the middle cerebral artery was monitored during cardiopulmonary bypass procedures by means of transcranial Doppler ultrasonography. Our investigation was carried out in a group of 16 patients with severe carotid stenosis or occlusion and in a control group of 42 patients with no or stenosis of less than 50% local diameter reduction. After onset of cardiopulmonary bypass, both groups showed a short unstable phase followed by increased blood flow velocity (10% increase ipsilateral to the obstruction, 27% increase in the control group). Just before rewarming, blood flow velocity was still comparable to (control group -3%) or higher than (ipsilateral to obstructions +14%) prebypass values. Analysis of three patients with postoperative diffuse encephalopathy did not reveal reduced blood flow during cardiopulmonary bypass as a relevant factor. Two of the three showed luxury perfusion. Reduced perfusion due to carotid obstruction was not observed during cardiopulmonary bypass and therefore cannot be considered a significant risk factor for the development of intraoperative stroke.
