Blood flow velocity is a factor that affects the diameter of arteries. In order to investigate the flow-induced arterial dilatation, the outer diameter of the femoral, common carotid or renal arteries of anaesthetized cats was measured during perfusion of these arteries with blood or plasma-substituting solutions under conditions of stabilized perfusion(More)
To ascertain whether the relative invariance of the pressure drop along the arterial cascade--from the aortic arch down to include the saphenous artery--during increases of saphenous outflow (Khayutin et al. 1993), is determined mainly by dilation of the latter, and to discover whether this invariability is a manifestation of endothelium-mediated(More)
The aim of this study was to clear up whether the flow-induced dilation of arteries is sufficient to ensure invariability of pressure drop along these vessels under many-fold increase in blood flow rate. In anaesthetized rats an arteriovenous shunt was constructed by connecting the saphenous artery and the femoral vein. Resistance of the shunt was changed(More)
