Article: Effect of carotid operations on regression of motor disorders in patients with a history of ischemic stroke.[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: This paper is concerned with an evaluation of the clinical effect of reconstructions on the brachiocephalic vessels in patients who suffered ischemic stroke. Altogether 143 patients with the above pathology were operated on. Of these, mild hemiparesis was present in 72 patients, moderate hemiparesis in 49, and severe hemiparesis was recognized in 17 subjects. The postoperative lethality accounted for 1.4% (2 subjects). Intraoperative development of repeated stroke was ascertained in three more subjects. The follow up of the operated patients lasted from three months to two years. In the postoperative period, a study was made of the time course of changes in motor pyramidal deficit. The study allowed the conclusion to be drawn that reconstructions on the brachiocephalic vessels are not only of preventive importance but also favour the elimination of motor disorders in patients who suffered ischemic stroke.Angiologii͡a i sosudistai͡a khirurgii͡a = Angiology and vascular surgery 02/2003; 9(2):99-105.
