Some Remarks About Experimental Brain Edema

  • H. J. Colmant
Conference paper


One of the experimental methods of brain edema production is the unilateral ligation of internal carotid artery combined with oxygen deficiency or carbon monoxide inhalation. This technique, originally introduced by Levine, results in infarction and swelling of one of the hemispheres allowing chemical, histochemical or pharmacological comparisons with the uninvolved side. The rate of edema development generally correlates with the extent of infarction and time interval following hypoxia.
