Capillary growth (increase in capillary/fibre (C/F) ratio by 20%) was elicited in skeletal muscles either by long-term increase in blood flow (5 weeks administration of prazosin in drinking water, 50 mg/l) or 7 days electrical stimulation (8 h/day at 10 Hz). Mechanisms that could explain it ((a) increased interaction of blood components with endothelial cells (due to increased haematocrit or decreased intermittency of flow); (b) increased velocity of flow and thus shear stress; (c) increased… CONTINUE READING
