Imaging Procedures and Findings
conventional angiography reveals marked stenosis of the supraclinoid internal carotid vasculature with proliferation of tiny collateral vessels presenting as puff of smoke.
The cause of this vascular disorder is unknown but can be treated with various external to internal vascular bypass surgeries such as encephaloduroarteriosynangiosis. MR angiography plays a useful role in assessing the patency of these shunts once surgically completed.
