About

Brain death is the irreversible loss of all activity in the brain, brainstem, and cerebellum, the part of the central nervous system that remains inside the skull. The clinical diagnosis of brain death should be supported by ancillary tests that provide information about cerebral blood flow or electrical activity in the brain. Some of the ancillary tests that evaluate cerebral blood flow include transcranial Doppler ultrasonography (TDUS), computed tomography (CT) angiography (CTA), and catheter-based cerebral angiography. This study hypothesized that Orbital Doppler ultrasonography (ODUS) alone is more effective than TDUS in detecting intracranial blood flow in diagnosing brain death. To this end, the investigators examined the results of ODUS in patients diagnosed as brain dead who underwent CT angiography.

Description:
Orbital Doppler ultrasonography (ODUS) Patients in whom brain death was suspected and the diagnostic procedure was initiated underwent ODUS .ODUS were performed during the apnoea test and the first neurological examination. At the second neurological examination at 12 hours, ODUS were repeated.
Treatment:
Diagnostic Test: Computed Tomography Angiography
Diagnostic Test: Transcranial Doppler ultrasonography
Diagnostic Test: Orbital Doppler ultrasonography
