BACKGROUND: Postoperative hyperperfusion may lead to severe neurological complications after superficial temporal artery to middle cerebral artery (STA-MCA) anastomosis. However, there are no reliable modalities to predict the occurrence of postoperative hyperperfusion during surgery. The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether a semiquantitative analysis of indocyanine green (ICG) videoangiography could be useful in predicting postoperative hyperperfusion after STA-MCA anastomosis. METHODS: This study included seven patients who underwent STA-MCA anastomosis due to occlusive carotid artery diseases. During surgery, ICG videoangiography was performed before and after bypass procedures, and ICG intensity-time curves were semiquantitatively analyzed to evaluate hemodynamic changes by calculating maximum intensity, time to peak (TTP), and blood flow index (BFI). RESULTS: Maximum intensity significantly increased from 252.6 ± 132.5 to 351.7 ± 151.9 after bypass (p < 0.001). TTP was significantly shortened from 12.9 ± 4.4 s to 9.8 ± 3.7 s (p < 0.001). Furthermore, BFI significantly increased from 33.9 ± 28.1 to 74.6 ± 88.4 (p < 0.05). Postoperative hyperperfusion was observed in five of seven patients 1 day after surgery. The ratio of BFI before and after bypass procedures was significantly higher in patients with postoperative hyperperfusion than those without, 2.5 ± 1.1 and 1.5 ± 0.4, respectively (p = 0.013). CONCLUSIONS: These findings suggest that semiquantitative analysis of ICG videoangiography is helpful in predicting occurrence of hyperperfusion after STA-MCA anastomosis in patients with occlusive carotid artery diseases.
