A reduction in the density of capillaries (rarefaction) is known to occur in many tissues in patients with essential hypertension. This rarefaction may play a role in increasing peripheral resistance. However, the mechanism underlying this capillary rarefaction is not understood. The aim of this study was to assess the extent of structural versus functional capillary rarefaction in the skin of dorsum of fingers in essential hypertension. The capillary microcirculation was examined with video… CONTINUE READING
