Abstrakt

Prostacyclin is a potent vasodilator, inhibitor of leukocyte adhesion, and platelet aggregation, and has been suggested as therapy for cerebral ischemia. A case of focal traumatic brain lesion that was monitored using intracerebral microdialysis, and bedside analysis and display is reported here. When biochemical signs of cerebral ischemia progressed, i.v. infusion of prostacyclin was started.
