The right medial cerebral artery of 25 primates (Macaca radiata) was occluded transorbitally with an atraumatic clip. The time courses of infarct volume and capillary morphometric changes in the ischemic lenticular nucleus, caudate nucleus and insular cortex were then determined. Volume changes of ischemic foci were studied morphometrically using an enzyme(More)
Focal ischaemia was produced experimentally in Macaca radiata monkeys by occlusion of middle cerebral artery (MCA). There was a lowering of the dopamine (DA) content of basal ganglia after 4 and 12 h of occlusion. DA content was restored to normal in basal ganglia after restoration of blood flow. With the progress of time the DA content was increased above(More)
Occlusion of the middle cerebral artery produced ischaemia and consequent changes in basal ganglia in the primate model of stroke within 0.5 h. Dopamine content was decreased in the right basal ganglia from 0.5 h up to 12 h after occlusion. Homovanillic acid content of the right basal ganglia increased initially at 0.5 h but, was decreased at 12 h. The(More)
Focal cerebral ischemia was produced in monkeys by transorbital occlusion of the right middle cerebral artery. Following this, in one group of animals the total microvasculature, including both perfused and nonperfused vessels of the opposite caudate nucleus and insula, was examined by alkaline phosphatase staining of the endothelium. In another group, the(More)
Physical and biochemical changes in the spinal cord of monkeys at 1/2, 2, and 4 hours following 200 g cm contusion injury and 50 g of compression injury and 2 hours of decompression following 4 hours of compression were studied. The pathophysiologic changes were milder in compression compared to contusion injury. Following contusion injury, at 1/2 and 2(More)
Microvasculature of the right caudate nucleus and insular cortex of monkeys with their right middle cerebral artery occluded was morphometrically measured with an image analysis system at 1/2, 4, 12, 24, and 48 hr and 2 weeks. A biphasic change in the microvasculature was observed. In the first phase up to 12 hr an increase in the number and length of the(More)
