Flow modulates coronary venular permeability by a nitric oxide-related mechanism.

Abstract

This study demonstrates that flow velocity modulates coronary venular permeability to albumin. Apparent permeability coefficients of albumin (Pa) were measured in isolated cannulated coronary venules ranging from 30 to 70 microns in diameter. Hydrostatic and oncotic pressures were controlled while the intraluminal flow velocity was varied. Pa at an… (More)
