accident (CVA) is a common, devastating neurological complication of
sickle cell disorder (SCD) with a high recurrent and mortality rate.
The Stroke Prevention Trial in Sickle Cell Anaemia study (STOP)
recommends routine screening with transcranial Doppler ultrasonography
in children aged two to sixteen years with SCD. The present study
assessed cerebral blood flow velocities of children with SCD in
accordance with the recommendation of routine screening by the STOP
