Abstract:

The direct and indirect effects on cerebral metabolism are important for curing ischemic disorders in the cerebral circulation. Direct effects on cerebral metabolism can be obtained with medications which pass freely through the blood-cerebral barrier. K-Mg asparaginate has such a property. It is known that K ions participate in the processes of polarization and depolarization of the cell membranes. In high concentrations, the K salts help the aerobic disintegration of glucose in the nerve cells. In this instance, the cell respiration increases and the content of inorganic phosphates increases as well, but the liability decreases. In order to study the effects of venous injection of K-Mg-asparaginate on the cerebral haemodynamics and bioelectrical activity, the authors carried out rheoencephalographic and electroencephalographic investigations in cases of patients with cerebral colliquatio softening.
