Abstract

Local capillary blood flow was studied in and around the spinal cord compression focus in humans with spinal injuries in the acute and early periods of the trauma. The effect of the capillary blood flow in the perimedullary network in the region of spinal cord compression on the degree of motor and sensory disturbances was analyzed. The relationship of the increase in capillary blood flow after spinal cord decompression with increases in leg muscle strength and pain threshold was determined.
