 Background: The pathogenesis of cerebral vasospasm is likely to be multifactorial. Exposure of the adventitia of large cerebral arteries to blood breakdown products initiates a cascade of changes in both morphology and vasomotor regulation of the exposed vessels. The role of nitric oxide (NO) in development of cerebral vasospasm process is controversial… CONTINUE READING
