BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE We tested the hypothesis that inhibiting nitric oxide production either before or during transient focal ischemia affects early postischemic brain injury. METHODS Halothane-anesthetized cats underwent 1 hour of left middle cerebral artery occlusion plus 3 hours of reperfusion. Pretreatment groups received either intravenous N omega… CONTINUE READING
