Carotid Arterial Supply of the Feline Brain
Applications to the Study of Regional Cerebral Ischemia
A study of the supply to the feline brain by the carotid-middle cerebral arteries was conducted using in vivo transcardiac injection with a mixture of micropaque and carbon black. Modifications in the filling pattern of the arterial vessels were visualized following short-term occlusion of a middle cerebral artery. A modified surgical method to induce occlusion of the M-1 segment of the middle cerebral artery is also described.
