Abstract

After the procedure, the patient's limb shaking attacks ceased. The postoperative XeCT scan showed improved CBF and a return of cerebrovascular reserve capacity. Recurrent limb shaking is a manifestation of decreased CBF. Quantitative XeCT CBF studies coupled with vasodilatory challenge is an important way to assess patients with cerebrovascular disorders and thus identify individuals who will benefit from cerebral revascularization.
