We previously reported that transcranial color-coded real time sonography (TCCS) is useful for detecting hyperperfusion syndrome. However, a limiting factor in the use of TCCS as a screening tool can be an insufficient temporal bone window. Our newly developed window-making TCCS method that creates a temporal burr hole opening has resolved this limitation. This window-making TCCS method is applicable for evaluation of hyperperfusion after carotid endarterectomy (CEA) on those selected patients who have insufficient temporal bone windows.
