Dynamics of experimental vasogenic brain oedema in the rat: changes induced by adrenergic drugs.


The effects of adrenergic drugs on the formation and resolution of cerebral oedema in a rat model of cold-induced vasogenic brain oedema were studied. Evans blue dye extravasation, water content and ultrastructural alterations (pinocytotic vesicle formation in capillary endothelial cells and apparent water accumulation in the brain parenchyma) were… (More)
