OBJECTIVE Even though cerebral vasospasm after subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) causes cerebral ischemia or infarction, the metabolic alterations in cerebrospinal fluids (CSF) after SAH have not been studied. This study was undertaken to measure the levels of glucose, lactate, pyruvate and glutamate in CSF from double hemorrhage dog models. METHOD Thirty-two mongrel dogs of either sex, weighing 15-30 kg, underwent double hemorrhage by percutaneous needle puncture of the cisterna magna and… CONTINUE READING
