Neuroprotective Effect of Phenytoin and Hypothermia on a Spinal Cord Ischemic Injury Model in Rabbits

Abstract

Background: Spinal cord ischemic injury during thoracic and thoracoabdominal aortic surgeries remains a potentially devastating outcome despite using various methods of protection. Neuronal voltage-dependent sodium channel antagonists are known to provide neuroprotection in cerebral ischemic models. This study was designed to compare the neuroprotective… (More)
