Abstract

A study was initiated to examine the morphological development of the human carotid bulb using different age groups under the hypothesis that sinus morphology reflects an adaptive change in response to alterations in cerebral bloody supply during the developmental years of the brain. Initially, the angle and sinus morphology of the carotid bifurcation in pediatric and adult patients was analyzed using biplane digital subtraction angiograms. As a result, the changes that occur as the brain matures were characterized.
