Abstract

As part of a series of studies on the effects of carotid occlusion in the gerbil (1–3, 5), water and electrolyte contents of the affected hemisphere were determined following 1 h of unilateral occlusion and different periods of recirculation. The results were compared with effects of air embolism (6) on the same parameters to determine whether some of the observed changes were associated generally with opening of the blood-brain barrier or were a more specific consequence of ischemic insult.
