Cerebral collateral circulation in experimental ischemic stroke

Author(s): Li Yuhan*

Cerebral collateral circulation could be a subsidiary tube network that is dynamically recruited once blood vessel occlusion, and represents a robust determinant of ischemia outcome. Though many strategies could also be used for assessing cerebral collaterals within the acute section of ischemia in humans and rodents, they're usually underutilized. Experimental stroke models might play a novel role in understanding the adaptation response of cerebral collaterals throughout anemia and their potential for therapeutic modulation. The systematic assessment of collateral introduction in experimental stroke models could also be used as a “stratification factor” in multiple correlation analysis of neuroprotection studies, so as to manage the within-group variability. Exploring the modulatory mechanisms of cerebral collaterals in stroke models might promote the change of location development of therapeutic methods for increasing collateral flow and directly compare them in term of effectuality, safety and practicability. Collateral medical specialty might have a task within the hyper acute section of ischemia, before recanalization therapies.
