Abstract

We have as yet very little information on the changes of local cerebral blood flow (ICBF) and glucose metabolism (ICGU) in the early posttraumatic period in closed head injury. Because of the difficulty in measuring CBF soon after head injury, the reported alterations of ICBF after the injury reveal wide variations, ranging from very low to pronounced hyperemia.
