Aging alters the vascular response to extracellular nucleotides. However, the molecular mechanisms that underlie the effect of aging remain unclear. We investigated the mRNA expression of P2X(1), P2Y(1), P2Y(2) subtypes of the nucleotide receptors (P2) in the basilar artery, aorta and carotid artery from male Sprague-Dawley rats, 2-months and 19-months old.(More)
BACKGROUND Acute hydrocephalus (HCP) after aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) often persists. Our previous study described factors that singly and combined in a formula correlate with permanent CSF diversion. We now aimed to determine whether the same parameters are applicable at an institution with different HCP management practice. METHODS We(More)
Cervical myelography by lumbar run-up produces excellent radiologic studies in most cases. Use of this technique avoids the hazards and pitfalls associated with a lateral cervical puncture. We discuss 92 cases, with excellent or good results in 98% and nondiagnostic studies in only 2%. Both of the poor technical studies were followed by computed tomographic(More)
