We studied the effects of removal of the superior cervical sympathetic ganglion on cerebral blood flow and vascular reactivity to adrenergic agonists and antagonists in 11 unanesthetized goats. Cerebral blood flow was measured by an electromagnetic flow transducer previously implanted on the internal maxillary artery. Ganglionectomy produced an increase of 66 ± 8.26% (SEM) in cerebral blood flow; this increment decreased gradually, and 1525 days later values for cerebral blood flow were similar… CONTINUE READING
