The effect of prolonged propranolol administration on myocardial transmural capillary density in young rabbits.

1. As a sequel to previous evidence that prolonged beta-adrenoceptor blockade in young rabbits led to a relative increase in the capillarity of ventricular muscle, an attempt has been made to localize and quantify the capillary density from epicardium to endocardium in 12-week old rabbits treated for 6 weeks with propranolol (3 mg kg-1) S.C. twice daily and… CONTINUE READING
