The effects of kaolin-induced hydrocephalus on regional blood-flow and water content of cat brain and spinal cord were measured. The role of the central canal of the spinal cord as an alternative pathway for cerebrospinal fluid in experimental hydrocephalus was also studied by positive contrast ventriculography. In comparison with normal cats, blood-flow in the cerebrum, cerebellum and brain stem of cats with acute hydrocephalus was reduced by more than 20 per cent: in those with chronic… CONTINUE READING
