Microdialysis for Neurochemical Monitoring in Human Brain Injuries
Based on our experience from studies on ischemic  and traumatic  brain injuries in the rat, in 1989 we formulated the hypothesis that microdialysis may be a powerful tool for metabolic monitoring and neurochemical studies of acute brain injuries in man. Modern neurointensive care (NIC) is based mainly on neurological, neuroradiological, and neurophysiological diagnostic methods. Methods for direct neurochemical measurements are greatly needed.
