ABSTRACT
Five separate incidences of patients with cerebrovascular disease(CVD) were revealed among 555 craniocerebral traumatic victims between 1991 and 192. The 5 cases of with cerebrovascular disease revealed included 3 aneurysm. 1 arteriovenous malformation and 1 spontaneous intracerebral hematoma caused by angiographic study. The frequent use of computerized tomographic scans in the evaluation of head-injured victims can well demonstrate an intracerebral hemorrhage, but may not ge able to detect the associated cerebrovascular disease;whereas the efficacy of angiogrphy, on the contrary, has been losing its popularity as diagnostic armamentarium. The importance of angiographic study should be considered, if clinical signs and/or brain CT ideate the possibility of cerebrovascular disease even during the course of head injury management.
Key Words: Cerebrovascular disease(CVD); Head injury; Angiography
