Abstract

Neurologic complications from cerebral ischemia, occur frequently cardiac arrest, as well as in the perioperative period in cardiac surgery. The cellular and molecular mechanisms of cerebral ischemia are complex. This article discusses several important cell death and salvage pathways that are important in experimental cerebral ischemia that may be critical to outcome in clinical brain injury.
