The influence of circulatory overload on extraalveolar microvessel endothelium of dog lung in vivo.


In an earlier study from this laboratory, morphometric evaluations of the alveolar capillary endothelium of the lungs of intact dogs were recorded after periods of sustained increases of pulmonary microvascular pressures (D. O. DeFouw, W. O. Cua, and F. P. Chinard, 1983, Microvasc. Res. 25, 56-67). In the present study ultrastructural characteristics of the… (More)
