Volunteers were excluded from the study if they were under 18 years of age; were pregnant; had coronary artery disease or disorders that could affect the cerebral blood flow
such as ischemic stroke, A-V malformation, history of meningitis, or central nervous system disease; had a history of intracranial surgery; currently used anti-arrhythmic, anti-hypertensive, anti-epileptic, or hypnotic-sedative drugs; had a history of alcohol, narcotic or substance use; smoked a water pipe for shorter than 45 min.; had a history of water-pipe smoking during the last 24 hours; or did not agree to participate were excluded from the study.
The most important goal of surgical revascularisation is to prevent cerebral infarction by improving Cerebral Blood Flow
Finally, rS[O.sub.2] measured by NIRS may be sensitive to changes in cerebral blood flow
, but this is a limitation for the NIRS technology itself.
Determination of the occlusion site is now a standard in the diagnostic protocol for patients with AIS, and for the purpose of selecting patients for endovascular procedures it is also necessary to evaluate the collateral status of cerebral blood flow
, which provides higher probability of predicting favorable outcome, as well as patients at risk for hemorrhagic complications [9, 33, 36].
Conclusion: Cerebral blood flow
increases in patients with anemia due to chronic renal failure.
Correlation between regional cerebral blood flow
and oxidative metabolism.
On-pump CPB resembles VA-ECMO to a certain extent from which we can extrapolate similar changes in cerebral and systemic hemodynamics leading to changes in cerebral blood flow

To the best of our knowledge, our case is the first to combine EEG, TCD, and CT angiogram at the same time, to illustrate complete dissociation between cerebral blood flow
and electric activity.
Superficial temporal artery (STA) to middle cerebral artery (MCA) anastomosis is a surgical procedure of direct revascularization to improve cerebral blood flow
and potentially prevent brain infarction for patients with stenoocclusive cerebrovascular diseases .
The aim of this study was to assess cerebral blood flow
velocity using transcranial Doppler (TCD) ultrasonography in patients with familial Mediterranean fever (FMF).
Thus, noninvasive assessment of cerebral blood flow
(CBF) and cerebrovascular reactivity (CVR) may provide additional information about the integrity of cerebrovascular reserve.
