Abstract: we present the case of a 64-year old woman with shock related to ischemic colitis associated with paradoxical embolism through a foramen ovale. some utilities of transcranial doppler ultra-sonography applied in this case that could have an usual interest in intensive and intermediate care are discussed. these include analysis of the regional distribution of cerebral blood flow, intracranial arterial continuous monitoring for detection of spontaneous microembolisms and injection of microbubbles to detect right to left shunts. the added value of using power m-mode doppler in transcranial doppler evaluations is highlighted.

Abstract: There has been a growing interest in vascular impairment associated with Alzheimer’s disease (AD). This interest was stimulated by the findings of higher incidence of vascular risk factors in AD. Signs of vascular impairment were investigated notably in the field of imaging methods. Our aim was to explore ultrasonographic studies of extra- and intracranial vessels in patients with AD and mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and define implications for diagnosis, treatment and prevention of the disease. The most frequently studied parameters with extracranial ultrasound are intima-media thickness in common carotid artery, carotid atherosclerosis, and total cerebral blood flow. The transcranial ultrasound concentrates mostly on flow velocities, pulsatility indices, cerebrovascular reserve capacity, cerebral microembolization. Studies suggest there is morphological and functional impairment of cerebral circulation in AD compared to healthy subjects. Ultrasound as a non-invasive method could be potentially useful in identifying individuals in a higher risk of progression of cognitive decline.
Algunas aplicaciones del Doppler transcraneal no habituales en las unidades de cuidados intensivos Some uncommon applications of transcranial Doppler in the intensive care unit

Abstract: Se presenta el caso de una mujer de 64 a os con shock por colitis isquémica en relación con embolia paradójica a través de un foramen oval permeable. Se comentan algunas utilidades del Doppler transcraneal empleadas en este caso que podrían tener interés habitual en cuidados intensivos e intermedios. éstas incluyen el análisis de la distribución regional del flujo sanguíneo cerebral, la monitorización arterial intracraneal para detección de microembolias espontáneas o la inyección de microburbujas para detección de cortocircuito derecha-izquierda. Se destaca el valor a adido aportado por la incorporación del Doppler modo M a la ultrasonografía Doppler transcraneal.
