Abstract

Balloon test occlusion of internal carotid artery has been frequently used in preoperative evaluation of patients with carotid aneurysms, fistulas and skull based neoplasms in whom arterial sacrifice is planned or considered as a possible part of therapy. We present our experience of the test in 28 patients. The test was positive in four and negative in twenty four patients. The results are compared with cross-compression angiography and the outcome following internal carotid artery sacrifice. There were no complications related to the test and the results accurately predicted the tolerance to occlusion of artery. We found the test safe, simple to perform and reliable to preoperatively detect patients at risk of ischaemic stroke following surgical ligation or endovascular occlusion of internal carotid artery.
