Abstract

The strict similarity between mean IABFV and SSBFV patterns suggests that CBF decrement is mainly due to a decrease in the venous outflow, which, in turn, produces an obstacle to the arterial inflow. The correspondent increase in pulsatile-IABFV confirms the presence of a distal outflow obstruction. All these findings point towards a purely hydraulic mechanism underlying the cerebral autoregulation which acts at the level of the so-called Starling resistor.
