An increase of regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) has been shown to occur in man during spinal cord stimulation (SCS) by Hosobuchi (1986) and by Meglio et al. (1988) using the 133-Xenon wash-out technique. In this paper we report the effects of SCS on CBF as measured by two different techniques: 8 patients were studied with the 133-Xe method and 28 with(More)
Transcranial Doppler sonography (TCD) patterns of middle cerebral arteries (MCA) were recorded in 10 patients before and during unilateral trigeminal ganglion stimulation (TGS). During TGS, TCD flow velocity significantly decreases in all patients: on both sides in 2 patients, only ipsilaterally to the TGS in 7 patients, and only on the opposite side in the(More)
