The effect of spinal cord transection on the blood-spinal cord barrier was examined at both the light and electron microscopic levels using the vascular tracer, horseradish peroxidase (HRP). At the light microscopic level, the pattern of hemorrhage and distribution of reaction product were examined and quantified at 0.5, 1.0, and 2.0 cm proximal and distal to the transection. The morphometric data supports the hypothesis that regions of the cord that are distal to a transection, exhibit a more… CONTINUE READING
