12 hours after cerebral ischemia. Swelling of the capillary endothelium. x 4, 500 Fig. 3. Cat. six hours after cerebral ischemia. Hemorrhages in the midbrain and in medial parts of the occipital lobe Blood Brain Barrier and Scintigraphy L. PENNING and D. FRONT A scintigraphic study of brain contusion confronted us again with the problem of the blood-brain barrier. It is generally accepted that damage of the blood-brain barrier is a cause of scintigraphic visualization of a brain lesion. However, the problem in brain tumors is quite different from that in brain contusion.

Though in our experiments obstruction of capillaries was confined to such nonperfused areas we think that they were the result rather than the cause of the "no-reflow" phenomenon. The distribution of lesions makes it probable that first venous compression by brain edema caused a regional stop of the circulation, which was followed by lesions of the microvasculature. Severe brain edema after cerebral ischemia or anoxia develops in two phases. 21 First intracranial hypertension is confined to the supratentorial space.
