Cerebral blood vessels (BVs) of dogs subjected to global brain ischemia by complete cardiac arrest of 15 min followed by 8 h of reperfusion, were studied in neocortex and hippocampus by means of transmission electron microscopy. Widespread endothelial microvilli were present in the postischemic animals. The number of endothelial microvilli in the postischemic animals (mean/BV in the neocortex = 3.26 and in the hippocampus = 2.54) was significantly larger than that in the non-ischemic controls… CONTINUE READING
