  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

Three hundred and fifty-seven digital subtraction angiography (DSA) were performed in 184 neurosur-gical patients by intraarterial injection. Examinations consisted of 192 carotid angiography, 110 vertebral angiography, 23 aortography, 11 spinal angiography and 21 other angiography. In all examinations, visualiza-tion of the vessels was excellent and the complications were never experienced.

High contrast sensitivity of DSA resulted in better visualization of tumor stains, phlebogram, and arteries in cerebral arteriovenous malformations with large shunt blood flow than conventional angiography.
