To clarify the role of N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors in acute spinal cord injury, changes in the intraspinal microcirculation after acute spinal cord injury in rabbits were examined. Systemic administration of MK-801, an NMDA receptor antagonist, at a dose of 5 mg/kg, significantly improved motor recovery after injury and significantly reduced edema(More)
