Selective neuronal damage and borderzone infarction in carotid artery occlusive disease: a 11C-flumazenil PET study.


UNLABELLED The pathogenesis of selective neuronal damage in internal carotid artery (ICA) occlusive disease is unclear. Imaging of the central-type benzodiazepine receptor (BZR), which is expressed by most cortical neurons, provides information on the neuronal alterations induced by ischemia in vivo. Hemodynamic ischemia due to ICA occlusive disease may… (More)
