  • Look Inside

Temporary and /or permanent occlusion of caro-tid artery is one of the most important strategy in the surgical treatment for cervical vascular and paraclinoid lesions. Cerebral ischemia produced by this procedure should be preoperatively grasped for the safety of the surgeries. Matas test has been widely applied to estimate the collateral blood flow at the main artery occlusion by observing only clinical features. In this study, we measured CBF and common carotid artery stump pressure (CCA stump P) in contrast to angiographic cross-filling in 43 carotid endarterectomy (CEA) patients to quan-titatively evaluate Matas test.
