Lined by endothelial cells Large conglomerates of villi called arachnoid granulations / pachionian bodies Electron microscopic study shows transcellular channels / pores in lining endothelium which allows free absorption of CSF, proteins.PowerPoint Presentation: 9PowerPoint Presentation: Perivascular space : Blood vessel entering brain substance will carry with it sleeve of arachnoid immediately surrounding the vessel and sleeve of pia more externally. Extension of SAS around the vessel known as PV space / virchow robin space. Products of metabolism, inflammatory exudates pass from brain substance into perivascular space, to enter CSF in subarachnoid space. Formation of CSF Active secretion by choroid plexus Trans ependymal diffusion of brains interstitial fluid into ventricles (minimal)PowerPoint Presentation: Secretion : Na + K + ATPase , carbonic anhydrase takes part in Active transport of Na+ occurs through epithelial cells lining choroid plexus Na + will carry Cl - with it. Na + & Cl - increase the quantitiy of osmoticaly active substances in CSF, which cause immediate osmosis of water through the membrane. Less important transport process move small amount of glucose into CSF, K + & HCO3- out of CSFPowerPoint Presentation: 13 Net transport of Na + and Cl - across the epithelium results in the secretion of CSF. Cl - efflux from the epithelium to CSF is mediated by a cotransporter. The generation of H + and HCO 3 by carbonic anhydrase is important in the secretion of CSF. From: Laterra J et al., in Basic Neurochemistry Production of CSFPowerPoint Presentation: Resulting characteristics of CSF : Osmotic pressure & Na + equal to plasma Cl - 15% greater than plasma K + 40% less than plasma Glucose 30% less than plasmaCSF formation: CSF formation 50% by choroid plexuses in the ventricles 40% by meningeal blood vessels and ependymal lining of ventricles 10% by brain and spinal cord blood vessels Absorption 80% by arachinoid villi into venous sinuses and spinal veins 20% by cervical lymphatics and perivascular spacesCSF: CSF CSF is a clear colorless, isotonic alkaline fluid, almost protein and cell free and contains less glucose and k+ than plasma. Volume- 130-150ml Daily secretion-500-550ml Rate of formation-0.2-0.3ml/min Pressure-130mm of waterPowerPoint Presentation: Circulation : From lateral ventricles through foramen of monro / inter ventricular foramen to III ventricle From III ventricle through cerebral aqueduct of sylvius to IV ventricle From IV ventricle leaves via median and lateral apertures of magendie and luschka to reach SAS covering cerebrum and spinal cord After bathing surface of spinal cord and base of brain CSF passes upward over convexity of hemispheres to be absorbed in intracranial venous sinuses.PowerPoint Presentation: 21PowerPoint Presentation: Absorption : 4/5 th of CSF absorbed via cerebral arachnoid villi 1/5 th spinal arachnoid villi Hydrostatic pressure in sub arachnoid space is higher than in dural sinuses facilitates fluid movement Small amount pass into perivascular space, sheath of cranial nerves Characteristics of CSF pH 7.31 – 7.34 Specific gravity - 1005 Osmolarity 290 – 295 mosm /l Volume 70-120 ml (25ml ventricles 25 ml spinal theca)Force of circulation: Force of circulation Movement of the CSF is by pulsating blood vessels, respiration and changes of posture CSF is secreted continuously at a rate of about 0.5ml per minute i.e. 720 ml per day Total CSF in the brain 120 ml CSF pressure can be measured by attaching a vertical tube to the lumbar puncture needle – 10 cm water 25PowerPoint Presentation: Rate of formation : 0.35 ml / min 500 ml / day Constituents mg / dl Plasma CSF Protein 7000-8000 20-40 Glucose 70-110 40-70 Nacl 560-630 720-750 Cholestrol 130-230 Nil Urea 20-40 10-30 Creatinine 0.6 – 1.5 0.5 – 1.9 Uric acid 2 – 8 0.5 – 2.5 Phosphates 2- 4 1.2 – 2.0PowerPoint Presentation: Constituent osmol / litre Plasma CSF Na+ 136 – 145 137-145 K+ 3.5 – 5.0 2.7 – 3.9 Ca2+ 4.5 – 5.5 2.1 – 3.0 Mg 2+ 1.3 – 2.1 2.0 – 2.5 Cl- 98 – 106 116-122 HCO3- 21-27 20-24 pH units 7.36 – 7.44 7.31 – 7.34 Osmolarity 290 – 295 285-295 CSF Pressure : Lateral recumbent - 60 – 180 mm H2O Shifting - 300 mm H2OHydrocephalus: Hydrocephalus Obstructive hydrocephalus Congenital malformations After inflammation or hemorrhage Mass lesions Communicating hydrocephalus Overproduction of CSF Defective absorption of CSF Venous drainage insufficiencyNormal Brain: Normal Brain 39Normal Ventricles: Normal Ventricles 40Hydrocephalus : Hydrocephalus 41Hydrocephalus : Hydrocephalus 42Normal ventricles and hydrocephalus: Normal ventricles and hydrocephalus 43Cerebral Edema: Cerebral Edema Vasogenic edema: A state of increased extracellular fluid volume; Brain tumor, abscess, infarct, hemorrhage; g lucocorticoids , hypertonic solutions Cytotoxic edema: The swelling of cellular elements; Hypoxia/asphyxia, water intoxication, meningitis, encephalitis, Reye’s syndrome Interstitial edema : Attributed to increased water and sodium in periventricular white matter; Obstructive hydrocephalus; Surgical shunting, acetazolamideCSF sampling: CSF sampling Contraindication or precaution in ↑ICP Pressure from lumbar puncture: 65-195 mm CSF (H 2 O), or 5 – 15 mmHg Cells: 0; ↑ by inflammation, tumor, or other cerebral damage Protein: < 35 mg/dl; ↑ in blockage or increased BBB permeability.

Low lipid (fat) soluble molecules do not penetrate into the brain. However, lipid soluble molecules rapidly cross the BBB into the brain. Molecules that have a high electrical charge to them are slowed . Therefore: The BBB is selectively permeable to :Oxygen, Carbon dioxide and glucose The BBB is not permeable to hydrogen ionsFunction of CSF: Function of CSF Maintenance of a constant external environment for neurons and glia Mechanical cushion to protect the brain and provide buoyancy to the heavy brain (1400 g) Serves as a lymphatic system and a conduit for neuropeptides pH of CSF regulates pulmonary ventilation and CBF You do not have the permission to view this presentation.
