Background: Induced hypotension could be achieved by a variety of drugs. Some of these drugs may have a detrimental effect on the cerebral blood flow. While prostaglandin E1 has no effect on local cerebral blood flow, Trimethaphan decreases and nitroglycerine increases it. These changes may be important clinically and manifest as postoperative psyc...
