Vascular and neuronal hypertensive brain damage: protective effect of treatment with nicardipine.

Abstract

AIM The brain is sensitive to hypertension, which causes a variety of vascular and neuronal cerebral changes. The present study was designed to assess the effect of long-term treatment with the Ca2+ channel blocker nicardipine on intracerebral (intraparenchymal) arteries in spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) by using microanatomical techniques associated… (More)
