Many angiographical reports, observations in the course of embolization and operation, dopplersonographical and different perfusion measurements supplied a few perception. adequate animal versions have not begun to be constructed as a way to elucidate the pathophysiological mechanisms. This monograph describes A V fistula versions in cats and rats, either traditional and newly constructed, which enable a greater comparability with human cerebral angiomas than prior ones. an important result's that the version of the leap forward of arterial strain waves into the capillaries following a failure of cerebrovascular rules can't be proven. particularly, in accordance with the findings in precapillary vessels provided the following, the legislation services as a rule in order that a breakdown of legislation can't be liable for worldwide mind edema usually noticeable after removing of angiomas. The rules used to be established utilizing diversified equipment, most vital of which being the CO reaction of two mind vessels to various CO contents of the inhaled air.
