BACKGROUND Adequate cutaneous microvascular blood flow and tissue oxygen tension are important prerequisites for successful tissue repair. The efficacy of tissue repair decreases with age and is linked to the age-related functional decline of unmyelinated sensory neurons that are important for inflammation and tissue repair. However, available information on the effect of these neuronal changes on microvascular blood flow and tissue oxygen tension is limited, particularly under control and… CONTINUE READING
