Perivascular spaces in the basal ganglia of the human brain: their relationship to lacunes.

Abstract

There is evidence for lymphatic drainage of interstitial fluid from the brain along perivascular spaces in a number of mammalian species. Ultrastructural studies suggest that there are similar drainage pathways in the human cerebral cortex. Perivascular spaces in the basal ganglia, however, differ from those in the cortex in that they dilate to form lacunes… (More)
