Revascularization in the Acute State of Cerebral Ischemia
Large numbers of people are affected throughout the world by the development of cerebral ischemic infarcts every year. Seventy percent of these events are caused by occlusive lesions, most of which are not directly accessible by surgical means. It has been suggested by Astrup  that a period of grace exists during which the presence of cerebral ischemia is not followed by the development of cell death, as long as the perfusion to the ischemic tissue is reestablished. The major concern voiced by most physicians regarding the possibility of reperfusing the acutely ischemic brain has been the potential for the development of a hemorrhagic infarction in the area of ischemia [4, 5, 20].
