These authors suggest that ‘‘cytokine expression following CSD forms part of a physiological stress response that contributes to the development of ischaemic tolerance in this and other preconditioning paradigms’’ (see below). That IL-1b can promote CNS repair has also been shown [70]. , who examined the e¤ects of microinjection of recombinant IL-1b into the striatum of 3week-old rats, and found significant reduction in apparent di¤usion coe‰cient (ADC) and increases in cerebral blood volume and blood brain barrier permeability [71].

Strong and R. Dardis Hasegawa et al. had shown that MR di¤usion-weighted imaging of rats yielded clear evidence of a transient depression of the apparent di¤usion coe‰cient (ADC) for water that propagated across the cortex at a rate appropriate for CSD in response to stimuli capable of inducing it; they also found evidence for propagating depolarisations in ischaemia [19]. However, Back et al. [134] used the same approach in patients with stroke and were unable to detect evidence of PIDs; there are significant practical problems posed by this approach when applied in patients whose condition may be unstable, and the time actually available for actual imaging in this study was relatively short.

CSD and an epileptic fit both result in transient increases in the metabolic Depolarisation Phenomena in Traumatic and Ischaemic Brain Injury 29 load inherent in membrane repolarisation, and hyperaemia is a feature common to both. Provided the hyperaemic response is su‰cient to permit prompt restoration of ‘‘resting’’ transmembrane cation gradients, neither CSD nor an epileptic fit should lead to any neuronal necrosis. A focal fit is a recognised complication of surgery to clip a ruptured middle cerebral artery aneurysm, and we, probably like most neurosurgeons, view such fits with concern as to their cytotoxic potential since vasospasm may attenuate the hyperaemic response that is required.
