BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Cerebral microdialysis (MD) is discussed as a technique for detection of cerebral ischemia in subarachnoid hemorrhage; however, clinical data on cerebral blood flow (CBF) are limited in these patients. The main objective of this study was to investigate whether pathological MD parameters reflect a reduced regional CBF (rCBF) determined by 15O-H2O PET. METHODS Thirteen subarachnoid hemorrhage patients (age, 48.7+/-15.0 years; World Federation of Neurological Surgeons… CONTINUE READING
