Additive effect of cyclooxygenase and nitric oxide synthase blockade on the cerebrocortical microcirculation.

Abstract

The contribution of vasodilator cyclooxygenase (COX) metabolites to the maintenance of the cerebrocortical blood flow (CBF) has been studied under physiological conditions and in nitric oxide (NO) deficiency. Inhibition of COX decreased resting CBF without changing arterial blood pressure. NO synthase blockade resulted in hypertension and CBF reduction as… (More)
