The blood supply of experimental liver metastases. VIII. Increased capillary blood flow within liver tumors with administration of epinephrine.

Abstract

Capillary blood flow has been studied with a laser doppler probe in normal liver tissue and within Walker carcinosarcoma tumors implanted in the livers of rats. Epinephrine, in doses from 1 to 100 micrograms injected as a bolus into the portal system caused immediate significant rises in tumor capillary blood flow. These effects lasted approximately 1… (More)
