Biochemical Correlates of Cerebral Edema
Although cerebral edema may be produced by a multitude of agents, the biochemical responses are limited in number. Chemically defined, cerebral edema is manifested by an increase in the water of the brain, usually accompanied by a corresponding increase in salt. This increase in water and salt characteristically occurs in white matter to a greater degree than in gray matter. We have had the opportunity of measuring other parameters in cerebral edema and will summarize these in the present report. In addition, a method for the simultaneous study of biochemical and morphological changes will be described.
