Blood flow velocities during experimental intracranial hypertension in pigs.


OBJECTIVES A purely hydraulic mechanism consisting in the pulsatile cuff-compression effect, by the cerebrospinal fluid displacement induced by the arterial pulsation, on the final portion of the bridging veins, has recently been hypothesized. This mechanism is able to maintain the constancy of cerebral blood flow (CBF) within the autoregulatory range, thus… (More)
