Cerebral Hemodynamics of Experimental Cerebral Embolization
Cerebral embolization in anesthetized dogs produces a fall in cerebral blood flow but no significant increase in cerebrovascular resistance. The mechanism of the decreased flow is usually a decrease in mean arterial blood pressure. Section of the sympathetic-vagus trunks produces no consistent increase in cerebral blood flow or fall in cerebrovascular resistance.
