Effect of mannitol on cerebral blood flow and microcirculation during experimental middle cerebral artery occlusion.

Abstract

Regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) was measured during and after a 2-3 hour occlusion period of the middle cerebral artery (MCA) in cats with the hydrogen clearance technique. The effects of mannitol upon rCBF were studied. Transient hypotension during occlusion dropped the blood flow to near zero on the occluded side, leading to postischemic hypoperfusion… (More)
