Functional outcome has become a key parameter for the determination of the efficacy of therapeutic interventions. Unfortunately, functional tests are not established for filament perforation induced subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). Therefore, we evaluated generally applied functional tasks for their potential to discriminate between various degrees of neuronal damage. Rats were subjected to SAH by an endovascular filament and were randomly assigned to controls treated with 0.9% NaCl, moderately… CONTINUE READING
