Mechanism of hyperosmolarity inhibition of vascular contractility.


Studies were made of the responses of the vascular bed of cat hind leg to intraarterial injection of noradrenaline, angiotensine, tyramine and vasopressine, as well as of carotid occlusion upon increasing the tissue osmolarity through intraarterial hypertonic infusion. The limb was perfused at constant blood flow. Hyperosmolarity inhibited the contractile… (More)
