OBJECTIVE Superficial temporal artery-middle cerebral artery (STA-MCA) anastomosis has been used in moyamoya disease (MD) and non-moyamoya ischemic stroke (non-MD). It is important to monitor hemodynamic changes caused by bypass surgery for postoperative management. We evaluated the bypass blood flow during STA-MCA anastomosis by using indocyanine green(More)
The antioxidant properties of different low molecular weight (LMW) chitosans 81 kDa) were examined for possible use in extended-release tablets. The criteria used were the ability of the chitosans to reduce Cu 2+ , and hydroxyl and superoxide radicals and N-centered radicals derived from 1,1'-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl, via the use of ESR spectrometry.

Sevoflurane and propofol are widely used for induction and maintenance of general anesthesia. Although the effects of sevoflurane and propofol on cerebral hemodynamics during maintenance of general anesthesia have been demonstrated, the effects during induction of general anesthesia have still not been clarified. We therefore compared changes in cerebral(More)
The relationship between changes in cerebral blood oxygenation and neuronal activity remains to be fully established. We compared somatosensory evoked potentials (SEP) and evoked cerebral blood oxygenation (CBO) changes in the sensorimotor cortex of the rat. In rats anesthetized with urethane and alpha-chloralose, we measured SEP and CBO using visible light(More)
