Flow velocity-dependent regulation of microvascular resistance in vivo.

Abstract

In skeletal (cremaster) muscle of pentobarbital anesthetized rats we tested the hypothesis that blood flow-dependent regulation of vascular resistance exists in the microcirculation. During occlusion of an arteriole we found that the consequent increase in red blood cell (RBC) velocity in a proximal parallel arteriole was followed by a mean increase in… (More)
