A surgical procedure has been developed to study the effects of cerebral ischemia in the unanesthetized Mongolian gerbil. The methodology is based upon the surgical isolation and instrumentation of both common carotid arteries. A loop of dental floss is placed around each carotid artery and passed through double lumen catheter material; this allows for later occlusion of the carotid arteries and their release in unanesthetized subjects. Functional changes following transient carotid artery… CONTINUE READING
