MCA Flow Asymmetry is a Marker for Cerebrovascular Disease
Utilizing the UIC Vascular Laboratory Registry, We Retrospectively Analysed the Significance of Side to Side Middle Cerebral Artery (MCA) Flow Velocity Differences. Side to Side Differences > 15% Measured by Transcranial Doppler Were Considered Asymmetric. Asymmetric Subjects Had 5 Times Greater Chance of Having Significant Cervical Carotid Narrowing on Either Side on Duplex Doppler and a 3.7 Times Greater Chance of Having a Stroke on Brain CT or MRI. MCA Flow Velocity Asymmetry is a Marker for Underlying Carotid Disease and Stroke.
