Acute Decrease in Flow in the Right Middle Cerebral Artery Detected by Transcranial Doppler Following High-Intensity Transient Signals in a Patient With Carotid Artery Dissection


Journal Article

© 2019, Society for Vascular Ultrasound. We report a case of evolving multiple vascular dissections where transcranial Doppler with emboli monitoring provided evidence of hemodynamic compromise after microembolic high-intensity signals suggested a clinical change in a patient presenting with a single left carotid artery dissection and pseudoaneurysm. She initially presented with Horner syndrome and later developed signs of right-sided ischemia on maximal medical therapy necessitating carotid stenting.
