Cerebral Microvascular Reserve for Hyperemia

  • Norio Tanahashi


It is well known that a temporary stoppage of circulation may result in reactive hyperemia in cerebral tissue as in other organs. However, little is yet known about the quantitative characteristics of reactive hyperemia in the cerebral circulation, especially in short periods of ischemia.
