Table 2. TcMEP Reduction Times and Neurologic Status after 72 h
Absolute and relative values for individual animals are shown.
* In these animals, three short periods of waveform absence were observed, of which the summation is given.
Interval = time in minutes between clamping the first segmental artery and reduction of tcMEP to below 25%; tcMEP < 25%= time in minutes that tcMEP were reduced to below 25% of baseline; tcMEP absent = time in minutes that tcMEP waveform was absent (< 40 μV); motor score = neurologic function at 72 h, with 0 being total paraplegic and 4 normal motor function; infarction = relative infarction volume of the lumbosacral spinal cord.
