The effect of furosemide (Lasix) therapy on a standardized experimental cerebral edema, induced in rats by applying a cooling stamp to the right side of the skull over the right coronal suture by means of a stereotactic instrument, was examined.

Following furosemide therapy, the behavior of these edema parameters was compared statistically with dexamethasone, glycerol and albumin. An increase of the water and sodium content, and a decrease of potassium was observed 24 h after the trauma, especially in the right hemisphere...
