This study examines whether platelet-activating factor (PAF) is involved in the occurrence of vasospasm after subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). A vasospasm model was produced in rabbits, with animals in six experimental groups receiving two subarachnoid injections of autologous arterial blood with the addition of one of the following; saline (Control Group 1),(More)
BACKGROUND The clinical importance of Guyon's canal is emphasized due to the various branching patterns of the ulnar nerve. So far, the arborization pattern of the ulnar nerve in Guyon's canal has been investigated mostly by cadaveric studies. PURPOSE To demonstrate anatomic variations of the ulnar nerve in Guyon's canal in vivo by using high definition(More)
In order to estimate the contribution of platelet-activating factor (PAF) to the formation of chronic subdural haematomas (CSH), we measured plasma PAF and anti-PAF antibody levels in head-injured patients with and without CSH and normal volunteers. Plasma PAF and anti-PAF IgG levels were higher in patients with CSH than in patients without CSH or in normal(More)
Platelet activating factor (PAF) content and PAF-acetylhydrolase (PAFAH) activity were measured in the plasma and haematoma of 34 chronic subdural haematoma (CSH) patients. The plasma PAF level in patients with CSH was higher than that in healthy controls. Although there was no correlation between the plasma PAF levels and the interval between the onset of(More)
