However, it is difficult to differentiate cardioembolic stroke from non-cardioembolic stroke (atherothrombotic stroke and lacunar stroke). In this study, we evaluated the levels of plasma brain(More)
To examine the effects of olprinone, a phosphodiesterase III inhibitor, on cerebral blood flow (CBF), we compared the effects of olprinone on CBF to that of acetazolamide. Using technetium-99m-ethyl cysteinate dimer (99mTc-ECD) brain SPECT, we measured regional CBF (rCBF) at 33 sites, including 16 right and left pairs of non-infarct cerebral cortexes, in(More)
