Catecholaminergic and Peptidergic Pathways Involved in the Development of Cerebral Vasospasm Following an Experimental SAH in the Rat
An experimental subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) was produced in the rat by the intracisternal injection of blood. The animals were examined with bilateral vertebral angiography. A biphasic vasospasm was seen with a maximal acute spasm at 10 min and a maximal late spasm at 2 days post SAH.
