Research on cerebral venous circulation disturbances (CVCDs) has been limited partly by the paucity of animal models that produce consistent venous infarction. Occlusion of two adjacent cortical veins in rats by means of a photochemical thrombotic technique provides a minimally invasive, clinically relevant, and reproducible model suited to study the pathophysiology of CVCDs. In this study, the effects of venous occlusion on regional cortical blood flow and the brain damage that ensues were… CONTINUE READING
