Microvascular Leukocyte Plugging in Evolving Brain Infarction in Humans
Animal experiments on “no-reflow” early after cerebral ischemia and reperfusion suggest significant participation of leukocytes in postischemic neuronal damage . In humans, however, leukocyte responses to arterial occlusion with or without reperfusion are not fully known. Therefore, we examined the histopathological specimens of the areas of early ischemia of the brain in autopsy cases.
