Every year nearly 800,000 people in the US have a stroke. Around 10 to 20 percent of strokes are due to carotid artery disease and more than 100,000 carotid revascularization procedures are performed every year. Without the help of cerebral blood flow monitoring, inadequate blood supply, dangerous embolization, and hyperperfusion can go unseen by the surgical team. Download the case to learn how the real-time blood flow data provided by the NovaSignal Platform allows clinicians to immediately respond to perioperative concerns.
