Effect of Preexisting STA-MCA Bypass on rCBF and SSEP’s Following Acute Stroke in Dogs
This study was predicated on the hypothesis that a preexisting extracranial to intracranial bypass can support hemispheric blood flow even in the face of an acute severe proximal vascular occlusion, and that delayed reopening of a bypass graft may also provide significant restoration of flow to a profoundly ischemic hemisphere. It was also designed to investigate the possible preservation of somatosensory evoked responses (SSEP’s) by bypass blood flow and the potential for return, if any, of SSEP function following delayed revascularization.
