Effects of Glycerol on Cerebral Blood Flow and Neural Function in Patients with Intracranial Space Occupying Lesions
Hyperosmolar agents are often administered to obtain a rapid decrease in elevated intracranial pressure (ICP). Numerous workers have reported the effects of glycerol but little is known about its actions on cerebral circulation in the area of peritumoral edema and neural function. This study was undertaken to elucidate the effect of glycerol on regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) and neural function in patients with intracranial space occupying lesions.
