Effects of acute nitric oxide synthase inhibition on lower leg vascular function in chronic tetraplegia.

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVE To improve our understanding of the lower-leg vascular responses of nitric oxide synthase inhibition in persons with tetraplegia. PARTICIPANTS Six people with chronic tetraplegia and 6 age-matched controls. METHODS Lower-leg relative vascular resistance and venous volume variation were obtained by venous occlusion plethysmography… CONTINUE READING
