Cerebral Hemodynamic and Metabolic Alterations in Stroke: Formal Discussion of Paper by Dr. Martin Reivich, et al.
I am pleased to have the opportunity to discuss this fine paper by Dr. Reivich and colleagues. There is a considerable amount of correlative data between clinical and laboratory studies presented by these investigators that agrees quite closely with some of our work in this field. Time permits only specific comments referable to three aspects of this work: (1) cerebral auto-regulation, (2) critical cerebral blood flow, and (3) variations in NADH studies with laboratory preparations.
