Edema formation in the hyperacute phase of ischemic stroke. Laboratory investigation.

Abstract

OBJECT Brain edema formation is a serious complication of ischemic stroke and can lead to mechanical compression of adjacent brain structures, cerebral herniation, and death. Furthermore, the space-occupying effect of edema impairs regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF), which is particularly important in the penumbra phase of stroke. In the present study, the… (More)
