Ex Vivo Imaging Data for Necrosis, Microvascular Obstruction, and Hemorrhage

AllMO-MO+ H-MO+ H+p Value
TTC % necrosis16.8 ± 2.45.1 ± 1.611.3 ± 1.538.8 ± 2.8<0.05 for all subgroups
Thioflavin S % MO7.8 ± 1.427.4 ± 2.30.0001
TTC % hemorrhage17.9 ± 1.6NA

Values are mean ± SD. Hemorrhage was smaller than the amount of MO. In slices with hemorrhage, there was a greater extent of MO and necrosis compared with nonhemorrhagic slices. Extent measured as mean percentage per slice ± SEM.

MO = microvascular obstruction; NA = not applicable; NS = not significant; TTC = triphenyl-tetrazolium chloride.
