Abstract

Hyperperfusion syndrome — a syndrome of brain hyperemia observed after improved blood inflow into the central nervous system, regardless of the use of a stent/operation as a treatment method, and is described as a complication observed in 0–5% of treated patients. The authors present this problem on the basis of their own experience of the Department of General and Vascular Surgery of the Medical University of Silesia, a problem which has not been reported in Polish literature up to this time. The material contains 1127 patients treated due to stenosis of the extracranial segments of carotid arteries from January 2005 to August 2010, including 523 patients who underwent surgery and 604 patients treated with a stent.
The authors analyse this clinical material from the point of view of symptoms that can suggest the occurrence of brain hyperperfusion syndrome. The material has been analysed retrospectively on the basis of case histories and nursing reports.
