Evidence indicates that after vascular occlusion, infusion of angiotensin II restores blood supply to ischemic tissues by stimulating the development of collateral circulation through a mechanism independent of the mechanical effects of increased blood pressure. To test this effect in focal cerebral ischemia, angiotensin II was intravenously administered… (More)

This is the first reported case of a primary intradural chordoma distant from the clivus and involving both the supra- and infratentorial compartments.
