PURPOSE Current rabbit stroke models often depend on symptoms as endpoints for embolization and produce wide variation in location, size, and severity of strokes. In a further refinement of an angiographic embolic stroke model, localized infarctions were correlated to neurologic deficits with the goal to create a rabbit model for long-term studies of therapies after stroke. MATERIALS AND METHODS New Zealand White rabbits (4-5 kg; N = 71) had selective internal carotid artery (ICA) angiography… CONTINUE READING
