Abstract

OBJECTIVE: Increased intracellular calcium concentration plays an important role in the secondary mechanism of spinal cord injury. In the presenting experimental study, we aimed to evaluate the healing effect of barnidipine, which has a high affinity for L-type calcium channels, on acute spinal cord injury and to compare its effects with those of methylprednisolone.
