S100B, an acknowledged marker of brain damage, is increased post-traumatically in plasma. The aim of this study was to investigate the diagnostic value of S100B release in experimental local extracranial ischemia and reperfusion. Anesthetized rats underwent laparotomy and ligation of the afferent blood vessels to the liver, gut, or kidney to achieve local ischemia in each organ separately. After 60 min of ischemia, ligatures were removed and resuscitation was performed for 3 h. S100B was… CONTINUE READING
