A new model of temporary focal neocortical ischemia in the rat.
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: We describe a new rat model of temporary focal ischemia that produces neocortical ischemia without the need for prolonged anesthesia. METHODS: Temporary focal cerebral ischemia was initiated during halothane anesthesia, maintained for varying periods without anesthesia, and reversed by clip removal requiring brief anesthesia. Tandem carotid and middle cerebral artery occlusion for 1-4 hours and permanent occlusion were used to determine the duration and extent of ische...Expand abstract
