Portions of the superior sagittal sinus and lacunae laterales containing arachnoid villi and granulations from 8 full-term newborn babies were studied by transmission electron microscopy. Arachnoid proliferations from 3 subjects were distended and fixed in vitro by applying a differential pressure of 8 cm H2O to the subarachnoid aspect of the tissues. The(More)
Human spinal arachnoid villi and granulations were studied after distension by a subarachnoid perfusion of Berlin blue and trypan blue. These proliferations were distributed on almost every nerve root in the thoracic and lumbar region. Human spinal arachnoid villi and granulations were divided into those located entirely internal to the dura, those that(More)
The superior sagittal sinus and confluens sinuum of 27 fetuses and newborns ranging from postmenstrual intervals of 26-54 weeks were studied by scanning electron microscopy and histology. 26-week specimens showed oval depressions in the final portions of tributary veins to the sinus. Histologically there were arachnoid tissue clusters within the dural wall.(More)
Adult New Zealand rabbits were injected intrathecally with 200 or 300 mgI/ml of metrizamide, meglumine iocarmate or meglumine iothalamate. They were placed in the Trendelenburg position for 20 min and allowed to survive for 1, 2 or 3 weeks. Sacrifice was by intraarterial perfusion of aldehydes under anesthesia followed by preparation of brain and major(More)
125I labelled Amipaque (metrizamide) was introduced by cisternal puncture into six rabbits and perfused at various pressures. The torcular was exposed, frozen rapidly, and excised intact. Sections of arachnoid proliferations were made from the frozen specimen and either freeze dried or sandwiched directly for autoradiography. Some specimens were freeze(More)
Hydrocephalus was induced in 10 mongrel dogs by injection of a silastic mixture into the basal cisterns. The posterior part of the left lateral ventricle was isolated from the remainder of the ventricular system by introducing Pantopaque into both lateral ventricles and the third ventricle with the animals in prone positions. Labeled albumin injected into(More)
