Morphometric analysis of the capillary supply in skeletal muscles of trained and untrained subjects — Its limitations in muscle biopsies

Abstract

Muscle fiber area, capillary density, and capillary to fiber ratio were determined in needle biopsy samples ofM. vastus lateralis processed for electron microscopy from 9 untrained men (average $$\dot V_{{\text{O}}_{\text{2}} }$$ max = 61.3 ml/min kg), 3 untrained women ( $$\dot V_{{\text{O}}_{\text{2}} }$$ max = 43.7 ml/min kg) and 5 well trained… (More)
