Abstract

To determine the critical flow level that can be safely reached during carotid clamping for carotid surgery it is useful to establish which CBF levels may cause a change in the reactivity to physiological stimuli. Some measurements of CBF during carotid surgery (2) have showed that neurologic complications can occur when the CBF values reached during clamping are below 25 to 30 ml/100 g/min.
