The effects of spinal cord ischemia on spinal cord blood flow (SCBF) and somatosensory (SSEP) and motor (MEP) evoked potentials were investigated in a rabbit model of reversible spinal cord ischemia. Spinal cord ischemia was produced by balloon occlusion of the infrarenal aorta for 30, 60, and 90 min. SCBF, SSEPs, and MEPs were measured before, during, and 1 h after aortic occlusion. Aortic occlusion produced absolute ischemia of the caudal cord followed by hyperemia upon reperfusion. SSEP's… CONTINUE READING
