BACKGROUND: Posterior cerebral blood flow is regulated by the basilar arteries (BAs). Vasospasm of BAs can occur after subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). Superior cervical sympathetic ganglia (SCG) fibers have a vasoconstrictor effect on the BA. We aimed to investigate the relationship between the degenerated neuron density of the SCG and the severity of BA vasospasm after experimental SAH.
