The value of transcranial duplex sonography in determining the indication of decompressive craniectomy in patients with acute hemispheric stroke

I. Fiss
Objective: Transcranial color-coded duplex sonography (TCCS) is a non-invasive method for bedside evaluation of cranial parenchyma. It yields reliable information regarding the midline shift in massive hemispheric infarctions by evaluation of lateral displacement of the third ventricle.The author studied[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
