BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Nimodipine is a therapy that reduces morbidity and mortality in patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH), though the mechanisms by which it does so are not well understood. In a rabbit model of SAH, we studied the effects of nimodipine by using functional CT imaging. We hypothesized that the nimodipine treatment group would have (1) increased mean basilar artery diameter, (2) less diminished cerebral blood flow (CBF) following vasospasm, and (3) better neurologic… CONTINUE READING
