Since changes in the surface area of capillaries may be relevant to capillary exchange, the distensibility of brain capillaries was investigated. Brain capillary diameters were measured after perfusion fixation of brain tissue at a constant perfusion pressure during hypo- or hypercapnia. Sections were embedded, stained, and analyzed by light microscopy. The results showed significant differences in mean capillary diameter between the hypocapnic and the hypercapnic group. In the eight brain… CONTINUE READING
