It is important to have information about the anatomy and the level of carotid bifurcation
(CB) before surgical procedures and interventions of CCA to minimize morbidity and mortality.
On histologic examination, there was recent hemorrhage and remote hemorrhage on plaque sections in most carotid bifurcation
Atherosclerosis mainly affects carotid bifurcation
and internal carotid artery.
3) MR Angiography produces reproducible three dimensional image of carotid bifurcation
with good sensitivity for high-grade stenosis.
The blood flow dynamics in a stenosed, subject-specific, carotid bifurcation
using the spectral element method numerically analyzed by [15,16].
A CT scan demonstrated a right-sided 2 cm mass located between the external and internal carotid arteries that enhanced with contrast and caused splaying of the carotid bifurcation
, suggesting a carotid body tumor (Figure A).
The carotid bodies are close to the carotid bifurcation
on both sides of the neck and the aortic bodies are located near the aortic arch.
A region 10 mm proximal to the carotid bifurcation
was identified, and the CIMT of the far wall was calculated as the distance between the lumen-intima and media-adventitia interfaces.
CAL model was induced by ligation of left common carotid artery near the carotid bifurcation
with a 6-0 silk under anesthesia, as described previously.
ABSTRACTObjective: To determine site specific carotid intima-media thickness: commoncarotid artery and carotid bifurcation
in hypercholesterolemia patients as a marker for atherosclerosis.
A region 1 cm proximal to the carotid bifurcation
was identified, and the IMT of the far wall was evaluated as the distance between the lumen-intima interface and the media-adventitia interface.
On the right, the tract surrounding the nylon suture was easily traced through the carotid bifurcation
toward the tonsillar fossa.
