Intra-operative transit time flowmetry reduces the risk of ischemic neurological deficits in neurosurgery
Intra-operative transit time flowmetry (ITTF) can be used to quantify blood flow in local at risk vessels before and after surgical intervention. As inadvertent vessel compromise represents a major cause of neurological deficit following neurovascular surgery, the purpose of this study was to assess this technology in terms of its indications, ease of implementation and interpretation, safety and reliability. Patients were prospectively invited to participate. ITTF was recorded from at-risk...[Show more]
