Anatomical definitions: The boundaries of the hippocampal structure including the dentate gyrus (DG) and the Cornu Ammonis (CA) regions were discreetly defined at all levels of sectioning according to the stereotaxic coordinates of the Paxinos and Franklin's Mice Brain Atlas.
Using the stereotaxic instrument, it was possible to avoid any other interference to the measurement of IOP.
Twelve rats were anesthetized and placed in stereotaxic head frame on a heating pad.
Then, two groups of animals (n = 6, each group) were anesthetized with a mix of ketamine-xylazine solution (1 ml/kg) and placed on a stereotaxic apparatus (KOPF Mod 5000, USA); then, stereotaxic injections were made by using a 10 [micro]l Hamilton syringe (model 701) coupled in manual microinjector with a velocity of 106 nl per revolution (Sutter Instrument USA).
Stereotaxic coordinates [13] were referred to select brain slices containing the auditory cortex.
Rats were deeply anesthetized with isoflurane (3% for induction, 1-2% for maintenance) in a 70 : 30 mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen using an isoflurane vaporizer (VetEquip Inc., Livermore, CA) and were placed in a stereotaxic frame (Kopf Instruments, Tujunga, CA).
For inducing DLB in the rat model, rats were randomly divided into three groups and underwent stereotaxic brain surgery on day 0 as described in our previous reports [8, 27].
During the experiment, the animals were fixed under the stereotaxic instruments (Takahashi Company, Japan) with blunt ear bars, and a small craniotomy was performed.
A small hole was drilled in the skull over the CnF according to the stereotaxic coordinates of the Rat Brain in Stereotaxic Coordinates by Paxinos and Watson (7.6-8.5 mm caudal to the bregma, 1.7-2.2 mm lateral to the midline suture, and 5.5-6.2 mm ventral from the bregma).
These surgical techniques includes CT guided stereotaxic aspiration, simple aspiration of ICH through a burr hole and open craniotomy each having their own merits and demerits.7 The aim of this study was to assess the risks and benefits of surgical treatment (Open Craniotomy) of Intra-cerebral hematoma (ICH) in our set up and consider the implications of the results on current clinical practice and future research endeavors.
Their brains are larger when compared with rodents, enabling conventional neurosurgery, stereotaxic neurosurgery, and surgical implantation of devices intended for human use (Lind et al., 2007; Nielsen et al., 2009; Conrad et al., 2012; Dolezalova et al., 2014).
