We have investigated the neural and local vascular effects on vessel length and surface area per unit volume in spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) and Wistar-Kyoto rats (WKY) by quantitative stereology. Fourteen SHR and 14 KWY (70-130 g) were anesthetized with chloralose-urethan, and the cremaster muscle was exposed for microscopic observation. The large arterioles entering the muscle were termed the first order, and consecutive branches were termed second-, third-, and fourth-order… CONTINUE READING
