The carotid rete of Artiodactyla, an intracranial arterial plexus which supplies blood to the brain, has intrigued investigators for a long time. This study was designed to examine the responsiveness of isolated retial arteries (250-700 microns in external diameter) of goat, pig, and cattle. The findings in these arteries were compared to those observed in cerebral arteries (250-650 microns in external diameter) of the same animal species. The magnitude of the arterial responses to potassium… CONTINUE READING
