Abstract

Cervical Doppler examinations on clinically brain dead patients have been performed since the mid-1970s. BÜDINGEN et al. [4] described the] typical oscillating “compliance flow” patterns in the carotid and vertebral arteries which were explained by back-and-forth movements of the blood column in the presence of an intracranial circulatory ]stop. Today, transcranial Doppler sonography allows the insonation of basal cerebral arteries [1,2] which are directly affected by rising intracranial pressure [6,8]. The method might therefore be of diagnostic relevance for cerebral circulatory arrest and can be compared with the widely accepted method of cerebral angiography [3].
