Electroosmosis Based Novel Treatment Approach for Cerebral Edema
This work aims to develop a novel treatment approach for cerebral edema. We propose electroosmosis based treatment to drive edematous fluid out of the brain parenchyma by direct current based on the brain tissue’s electroosmotic property. The predicted results demonstrate that the edematous fluid can be driven out of edema region to subarachnoid space and then absorbed into the superior sagittal sinus together with cerebrospinal fluid to achieve the alleviation of the cerebral edema. The proposed approach has the potential to be developed as a new treatment solely or as a complement to existing conventional treatments of edema... Read more
