The effect of acute and chronic femoral artery ligation on the blood flow through the gastrocnemius muscle of the rat examined using laser Doppler flowmetry and xenon-133 clearance.

Abstract

In this investigation the resting gastrocnemius muscle blood flow of the anaesthetized rat was evaluated using a recently developed laser Doppler flowmeter and the xenon-133 clearance technique. The perfusion of the microvasculature of the muscle was measured in normal control rats and in animals in which the supplying femoral artery had been acutely (1 h-1… (More)
