Summary of "Carotid Artery Stenosis Is Associated with Better Intracranial Collateral Circulation in Stroke Patients."

Adequate collateral circulation improves the clinical outcome of ischemic stroke patients. We evaluated the influence of ipsilateral carotid stenosis on intracranial collateral circulation in acute stroke patients.

Are Localized Lesions in the Common Carotid Artery a Risk Factor for Recurrence of Ischemic Stroke in Patients with Symptomatic Carotid Artery Stenosis?

Various studies have addressed risk factors for recurrence of ischemic stroke in patients with symptomatic carotid artery stenosis. However, no investigations have compared common localized carotid ar...

An 82-year-old man with dementia, gait disturbance, and a small cerebral infarction due to severe bilateral carotid artery stenosis was successfully treated with carotid artery stenting (CAS). Preoper...

Collateral grade of the Willis' circle predicts outcomes of acute intracranial internal carotid artery occlusion before thrombectomy.

Endovascular mechanical thrombectomy (EVMT) shows significant promise in improving acute ischemic stroke (AIS) with proximal artery occlusion, but outcomes have been variable. We explored the patients...

A Systematic Review and Updated Meta-analysis for Carotid Near-Occlusion.

Carotid near-occlusion (CNO) is distal luminal collapse of the internal carotid artery beyond a tight stenosis. CNO is a relatively rare condition accounting for 3% in symptomatic carotid stenosis and...

Pattern of Activated Pathways and Quality of Collateral Status in Patients with Symptomatic Internal Carotid Artery Occlusion.

Internal carotid artery occlusion (ICAO) is an important risk factor for stroke. Cerebral hemodynamics in patients with ICAO depends on the individual capacity to activate sufficient collateral pathwa...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Blood clot formation in any part of the CAROTID ARTERIES. This may produce CAROTID STENOSIS or occlusion of the vessel, leading to TRANSIENT ISCHEMIC ATTACK; CEREBRAL INFARCTION; or AMAUROSIS FUGAX.

Transient complete or partial monocular blindness due to retinal ischemia. This may be caused by emboli from the CAROTID ARTERY (usually in association with CAROTID STENOSIS) and other locations that enter the central RETINAL ARTERY. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p245)

Damages to the CAROTID ARTERIES caused either by blunt force or penetrating trauma, such as CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA; THORACIC INJURIES; and NECK INJURIES. Damaged carotid arteries can lead to CAROTID ARTERY THROMBOSIS; CAROTID-CAVERNOUS SINUS FISTULA; pseudoaneurysm formation; and INTERNAL CAROTID ARTERY DISSECTION. (From Am J Forensic Med Pathol 1997, 18:251; J Trauma 1994, 37:473)

Pathological conditions involving the CAROTID ARTERIES, including the common, internal, and external carotid arteries. ATHEROSCLEROSIS and TRAUMA are relatively frequent causes of carotid artery pathology.

The two principal arteries supplying the structures of the head and neck. They ascend in the neck, one on each side, and at the level of the upper border of the thyroid cartilage, each divides into two branches, the external (CAROTID ARTERY, EXTERNAL) and internal (CAROTID ARTERY, INTERNAL) carotid arteries.
