The endothelial surface layer
The endothelial lining of blood vessels presents a large surface area for exchange of materials between blood and tissues, and is critically involved in many other processes such as regulation ofExpand

Blood viscosity in tube flow: dependence on diameter and hematocrit.
Since the original publications by Martini et al. (Dtsch. Arch. Klin. Med. 169: 212-222, 1930) and Fahraeus and Lindqvist (Am. J. Physiol. 96: 562-568, 1931), it has been known that the relativeExpand

Resistance to blood flow in microvessels in vivo.
Resistance to blood flow through peripheral vascular beds strongly influences cardiovascular function and transport to tissue. For a given vascular architecture, flow resistance is determined by theExpand

Blood flow in microvascular networks. Experiments and simulation.
A theoretical model has been developed to simulate blood flow through large microcirculatory networks. The model takes into account the dependence of apparent viscosity of blood on vessel diameterExpand

Design principles of vascular beds.
Hemodynamic parameters were determined in each vessel segment of six complete microvascular networks in the rat mesentery by using a combination of experimental measurements and theoreticalExpand

Red cell distribution at microvascular bifurcations.
The distribution of red cell and blood volume flow was studied at 65 arteriolar bifurcations in the rat mesentery. Hematocrit and flow velocity were measured simultaneously in all three vesselExpand

Biophysical aspects of blood flow in the microvasculature.
The main function of the microvasculature is transport of materials. Water and solutes are carried by blood through the microvessels and exchanged, through vessel walls, with the surrounding tissues.Expand

The apparent viscosity of blood in glass tubes declines with decreasing diameter (Fåhraeus-Lindqvist effect) and exhibits a distinctive minimum at 6-7 microm. However, flow resistance in vivo inExpand

Structural adaptation and stability of microvascular networks: theory and simulations.
A theoretical model was developed to simulate long-term changes of vessel diameters during structural adaptation of microvascular networks in response to tissue needs. The diameter of each vascularExpand
