In perinatal lungs, veins contribute substantially to total pulmonary vascular resistance. The present study was designed to determine the role of endothelium-derived nitric oxide (EDNO) in modulating the responsiveness of pulmonary veins and arteries in newborn lambs. Fourth-order pulmonary arterial and venous rings of newborn lambs were suspended in organ chambers filled with modified Krebs-Ringer bicarbonate solution (95% O2/5% CO2, 37 degrees C), and their isometric force was measured… CONTINUE READING
