Much larger transcapillary hydrodynamic conductivity in skeletal muscle and skin of man than previously believed.


The capillary filtration coefficient (CFC) in the human forearm, determined with the 'venous occlusion' method, was found to be about 0.005 ml min-1 100 ml-1 soft tissue mmHg-1 when capillary pressure (Pc) was raised by about 30 mmHg, a finding in accordance with previous literature. With gradually smaller increments of Pc, however, the calculated CFC… (More)
