Abstract:

Focal areas of hemorrhagic necrosis were produced in the brains of anesthetized monkeys. The animals were followed for a period of 24 hours, after which they were sacrificed and the cerebral hemispheres analyzed chemically for their electrolyte and water content. A second group of animals was treated with reserpine beginning 1 hour after injury. No unequivocal evidence that this form of therapy reduced the edema associated with these lesions was obtained.
