Abstract

Experiments with Sprague-Dawley rats of the Wistar strain were performed in order to analyze brain and liver metabolism following microvascular end-to-end anastomosis of the right carotid artery of the rat. The purpose of these experiments was to determine how much a temporary interruption of the bilateral blood supply of the brain during the procedure would interfere with the normal carbohydrate metabolism of the brain, an organ supplied by the clipped artery, and of the liver, an organ farther away from the field of blood supply of this artery.
