An assessment was made of the relationship between vasoconstrictor-mediated changes in metabolism and the apparent flow in putative nonnutritive vessels of muscle located on tendon. Surgically isolated rat hindlimbs were perfused at constant flow while monitoring perfusion pressure and venous pO2. In addition exposed tibial tendon vessels of the biceps… CONTINUE READING
