Histologic Findings in Graded Experimental Spinal Cord Compression in the Cat
The acute concussive spinal cord injury model has been used extensively for the histologic and neurophysiologic evaluation of spinal cord injury (2, 3, 5, 9, 11, 12). The sequential morphologic alterations following acute concussive injuries are well-known (2, 3, 4, 5, 10, 11, 12). Only little has been said about histologic changes following graded cord compression (6, 7). In this investigation, the histologic alterations following graded subacute compression are compared with those following acute injury. Differences between dorsal and ventral and fast and slow compression are discussed.
