Abstract [en]

OBJECT: The aim of this study was to explore the relationship between hemodynamics (intracranial and systemic) and brain tissue energy metabolism, and between hemodynamics and glutamate (Glt)-glutamine (Gln) cycle activity. METHODS: Brain interstitial levels of lactate, pyruvate, Glt, and Gln were prospectively monitored in the neurointensive care unit for more than 3600 hours using intracerebral microdialysis in 33 patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). Intracranial pressure (ICP), mean arterial blood pressure, and cerebral perfusion pressure (CPP) were recorded using a digitalized system. RESULTS: Interstitial Gln and pyruvate correlated with CPP (r = 0.25 and 0.24, respectively). Intracranial pressure negatively correlated with Gln (r = -0.29) and the Gln/Glt ratio (r = -0.40). Levels of Gln and pyruvate and the Gln/Glt ratio were higher and levels of Glt and lactate and the lactate/pyruvate ratio were lower during periods of decreased ICP (<or= 10 mm Hg) as compared with values in periods of elevated ICP (> 10 mm Hg). In 3 patients, a poor clinical condition was attributed to high ICP levels (range 15-25 mm Hg). When CSF drainage was increased and the ICP was lowered to 10 mm Hg, there was an instantaneous sharp increase in interstitial Glt and pyruvate in these 3 patients. CONCLUSIONS: Increasing interstitial Gln and pyruvate levels appear to be favorable signs associated with improved CPP and low ICP. The authors suggest that this pattern indicates an energy metabolic situation allowing augmented astrocytic energy metabolism with accelerated Glt uptake and Gln synthesis. Moreover, their data raised the question of whether patients with SAH and moderately elevated ICP (15-20 mm Hg) would benefit from CSF drainage at lower pressure levels than what is usually indicated in current clinical protocols.
