TCD Offers Hope for Children with Sickle Cell Disease

September 2021

More than 75% of the global burden of SCD occurs in sub-Saharan Africa, where an estimated 1.03 million children are afflicted. Learn more about how Dr. Nicole O’Brien and Nationwide Children’s Hospital is using TCD to help treat SCD in Africa!

Blood Flow in the Brain is Indicative of Overall Health

Access to real-time data can prevent disability or death. With more than 200 clinical studies published annually, indications for the use of cerebral ultrasound (also referred to as TCD) are expanding.

PFO

VASOSPASM

INTRAPROCEDURAL MONITORING

The prevalence of PFO among the cryptogenic stroke population is ~40% to 50%. ¹

Vasospasm has been reported in as many as 70% of patients after a subarachnoid hemorrhage. ³

It is estimated that every year up to 600,000 patients in the U.S. suffer a stroke during, or after, a cardiovascular procedure.

With 96% sensitivity and 92% specificity, TCD has been shown to detect 2X the number of PFOs vs TTE. ²
Guidelines recommend using TCD to monitor for the development of arterial vasospasm.
TCD monitoring is now recognized as a practical tool to detect intra‐ and periprocedural events.

“It is remarkable that a diagnostic machine used to study the brain could give us insight into the pathophysiology of a pulmonary disease. The benefit of using this particular system was that automated monitoring allowed providers to assess cerebral blood flow while minimizing the potential for exposure to COVID-19.”
