Abstract

Two-dimensional angiographic perfusion imaging (2DAP) is a new technique permitting perfusion imaging during angiography, and has been used to study cerebral vasospasm. Here we report our experience with this technique following angioplasty and stent placement in a patient with symptomatic and medically refractory stenosis of the right supraclinoid internal carotid artery. We found that intraprocedural angiographic perfusion imaging provided real-time and objective evidence of improved cerebral perfusion during intervention. Following treatment, the patient remains symptom-free at last follow-up.
