Abstract

Eighty-three patients with intraplaque hemorrhage of the carotid arteries, explored by Duplex scanning, are reported; 36 among them were also studied by digital angiography and 28 were operated on. The echographic aspect suggesting the presence of an intraplaque hemorrhage is that of a hypo-anechogenic stria separating the intimal plaque from the media-adventitia complex. On the contrary, the angiographic findings are aspecific and unrelated to the presence of intramural blood clots. We think that duplex scanning is the investigation of choice in detecting intraplaque hemorrhage of the carotid arteries. The role of other radiological techniques, such as computed tomography of the neck and magnetic resonance, is also discussed.
