Evoked population spikes were recorded from the dentate granule cell layer of hippocampal slices obtained from adult rats. These slices were subjected to short periods of anoxia in the presence of different anesthetics. The recovery of the population spike after anoxia was compared across treatments. Little or no recovery was found after 10 min of anoxia(More)
Desflurane is a volatile anesthetic that allows rapid induction and emergence, reduces cerebral metabolism, and enhances tissue perfusion. We studied the effect of treatment with 4%, 6%, and 12% desflurane on hypoxic neuronal damage by comparing the size of the postsynaptic evoked population spike recorded from the cornu ammonis 1 (CA1) pyramidal cell layer(More)
The rat hippocampal slice was used as a model system to study the effects of anesthetics on anoxic damage. Thiopental, but not isoflurane, allowed recovery of the postsynaptic population spike evoked from the dentate granule cells. Creatine preincubation protected both dentate granule and CA1 pyramidal cells against anoxic damage. Calcium-free, 10 mM(More)
This report is the first to correlate data concerning intraoperative somatosensory evoked potentials (SSEPs) and local spinal cord blood flow (ISCBF) in patients with syringomyelia. In a consecutive study, bilateral median nerve SSEPs were recorded intraoperatively in 13 patients undergoing a syrinx shunt to the posterior fossa cisterns(More)
