The reported specificity is 97–100% and the sensitivity is 91–100%13. The few reported false positives have been patients with some minimal regional arterial flow on catheter angiography, but ultimately all these patients progressed to brain death14. In addition, it should be noted that transcranial Doppler findings consistent with brain death can be transiently present immediately following cardiac arrest or during brief severe ICP elevation, such as could occur during re-rupture of a cerebral aneurysm.

The immediate detection of nonlysed emboli in the distal vertebral arteries, basilar artery (posterior transcranial Doppler), or distal internal carotid artery, middle cerebral artery stem, anterior cerebral artery stem, or posterior cerebral artery stem (anterior transcranial Doppler) has highly important therapeutic implications. If, by transcranial Doppler, the flow patterns are normal in these vessels, it can be assumed that the embolic fragment has migrated and lysed out of the vessel. 3A) is highly suggestive of such migration and lysis.

The incidence of radiographic vasospasm peaks on the sixth to eighth day following rupture of the aneurysm, and can be detected on catheter angiography in up to 70% of patients on the seventh day. However, the incidence of delayed ischemic neurologic deficits (DINDs) caused by vasospasm is considerably lower at 20–30%, presumably due to adequate collateral supply in many patients. As the major risk factor for vasospasm is the presence of blood and its breakdown products in close proximity to the surface of major cerebral arteries, the vessel segments most likely to be involved are those of the major branches of the circle of Willis at the base of the brain.
