ABSTRACT
A method of assessing the circulation separately in the calf and foot with the intra-arterial injection of RISA and the placement of ?-ray scintillation probes over the calf and sole is described. The downslope gradient seems to provide a semi-quantitative estimate of skin and muscle blood flow correlating significantly with various pharmacologic and hemodynamic actions known to be associated with changes in blood flow in one or both of these areas. The method does not provide a quantitative index of blood Sow but may be useful for clinical purposes in the separate estimate of the circulatory states in the calf muscles and foot.

    We performed two experiments to describe the magnitude of delayed-onset muscle soreness (DOMS) associated with blood flow restriction (BFR) exercise and to determine the contribution of the concentric (CON) versus eccentric (ECC) actions of BFR exercise on DOMS. In experiment 1, nine subjects...
