Cell-free layer formation in small arterioles at pathological levels of erythrocyte aggregation.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To test our hypothesis that an elevation in the aggregation level of red blood cells found in human pathological conditions will significantly enhance cell-free layer formation in small arterioles. METHODS Visualization of arteriolar blood flow in rat cremaster muscle was carried out in both normal and reduced flow conditions before and after… (More)
