Detection of Cerebral Vasculopathy by Transcranial Doppler in Children With Neurofibromatosis Type 1
(Sage Publications Inc, 2016)
Neurofibromatosis type 1 is characterized by nerve sheath neurofibromas associated with a number of additional clinical features, including cerebrovascular disease. The aim of this study was to use transcranial Doppler as ...
Changes in Transcranial Doppler Flow Velocities in Children with Sickle Cell Disease: The Impact of Hydroxyurea Therapy
(Elsevier Science Bv, 2018)
Background and Objectives: Hydroxyurea (HU) was recently described as a substitute for chronic transfusion for children with sickle cell disease (SCD) and abnormal transcranial Doppler (TCD) velocities who have received ...
Brazilian guidelines for the application of transcranial ultrasound as a diagnostic test for the confirmation of brain death
(Academia Brasileira de Neurologia - ABNEURO, 2012-05-01)
Neurosonological studies, specifically transcranial Doppler (TCD) and transcranial color-coded duplex (TCCD), have high level of specificity and sensitivity and they are used as complementary tests for the diagnosis of ...
Transcranial Doppler ultrasonography in adults with sickle cell disease
(Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2006-08-22)
Background: Transcranial Doppler (TCD) is used to select children with sickle cell disease (SCD) for primary stroke prevention using regular blood transfusion. Whether it can also identify high stroke risk in adults with ...
Is the number of microembolic signals related to neurologic outcome in coronary bypass surgery?
(Academia Brasileira de Neurologia - ABNEURO, 2001-03-01)
Coronary artery bypass surgery (CABG) without cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) may potentially reduce the number of microembolic signals (MES) associated with aortic manipulation or generated by the pump circuit, resulting in ...
