PURPOSE Some previous studies have shown that resistance exercise training with venous occlusion causes an enhanced hypertrophy in human muscles. To investigate the effects of blood flow on muscular size at either cellular or subcellular level, we developed an animal model in which several veins from hindlimb muscles of the rat are surgically crush-occluded. METHODS Twenty-four male Wister rats were randomly assigned into either a group for sham operation (sham group) or a group for venous… CONTINUE READING
