Vignette
  • 69 year-old male presents with hypertensive crisis manifest by acute-onset confusion and elevated systolic pressures to the 160s
  • He underwent carotid endarterectomyone day earlier for 75% proximal internal carotid artery stenosis
  • Stenosis was discovered after he developed right facial droop from multiple embolic infarcts in the left middle cerebral artery distribution two weeks earlier

perfusion imaging of cerebral hyperperfusion syndrome following revascularization
Perfusion Imaging of Cerebral Hyperperfusion Syndrome Following Revascularization
  • Cerebral Hyperperfusion Syndrome (CHS) following revascularization may present as ipsilateral headache, focal seizure, and/or neurological deficit
  • CHS is caused by loss of autoregulation, hypertension, and ischemia-reperfusion injury resulting in increased regional blood flow and vascular congestion
  • Non-perfusion imaging may show intraparenchymal hemorrhage or edema
  • Perfusion imaging shows increased relative blood flow, increased relative blood volume, and decreased mean transit time
  • Labetalol and clonidine are used for aggressive blood pressure control until cerebral autoregulation is restored
