Histologic characteristics of necrotic cell death block delayed death of neurons (8–10). Thus, depending are cytoplasmic and nuclear swelling, loss of integrity of cell on the duration and severity of ischemia, stroke may pro- organelles, rupture of the cell membrane, and dissolution duce cell death with features of necrosis or apoptosis. In vivo, necrotic cell death is often accompanied by intense inflammation with recruitment of inflammatory cells. This inflammatory response can injure MECHANISMS OF NECROTIC CELL DEATH adjacent normal cells. The characteristics of programmed cell death and necrosis are summarized in Table 92. The primary pathologic mechanism in stroke is the deple- tion of energy stores; however, considerable evidence indi- cates that excitatory amino acids (EAAs) exacerbate ischemic NATURE OF NEURONAL DEATH IN injury.
