In the model that followed, 5 ml of blood was injected into the cisterna magna (81), which caused a decrease in the contractility of vasospastic arteries 7 days after hemorrhage. This model has been used to study several experimental treatments, including papaverine (82). Standardization of the angiographic technique and use of a Trendelenberg position for 15 min after injection to encase the subarachnoid clot within the intracranial cisterns improved the reproducibility of this method. The modified technique was reported to induce a 37% decrease in basilar artery vasospasm 30 min and 48 hr after hemorrhage (83,84).
