Increased cerebral lactate output to cerebral venous blood after forebrain ischemia in rats.


Increased cerebral lactate levels are a well-known aspect of the sequelae of the metabolic derangements that follow cerebral ischemia. A new technique has recently become available to sample cerebral venous blood from the superior sagittal sinus on a long-term basis in conscious rats. We report the applicability of this method to assess serial biochemical… (More)
