Previous studies have reported accumulation of calcium (Ca) in brain tissue of injured or ischaemic experimental animals. In the present study, head trauma (HT) was induced in the left hemisphere of rats which were subsequently sacrificed 15 min, 1, 2, 4, 24 or 48 h later. Their brains were analysed for oedema formation by the determination of specific gravity (SG), using linear gradient columns, and water content, by dry to wet weight ratio. Total tissue Ca content was measured by atomic… CONTINUE READING
