The effect of microvascular pattern alterations on network resistance in spontaneously hypertensive rats

Abstract

Structural microvascular rarefaction, defined by a loss of vessels, is a common characteristic of hypertension and has been associated with elevated microvascular resistance. However, determining the causal relationship between microvascular network structure and resistance requires a consideration of all pattern changes throughout a network. The objectives… (More)
