The protective effect of mild hypothermia was studied in rodent models of both permanent and transient focal cerebral ischemia. In Expt. 1, Wistar rats were exposed to 6 h permanent ischemia by bilateral occlusion of both common carotid arteries and right middle cerebral artery. In Expt. 2, animals were exposed to 3 h transient ischemia followed by 21 h reperfusion, and in Expt. 3, 3 h transient ischemia was followed by 69 h of reperfusion. Expt. 4 used 3 h transient ischemia followed by 3 h ...Expand abstract
