AUTOLOGOUS SKIN GRAFTS IN THE RAT: VITAL MICROSCOPIC STUDIES OF THE MICROCIRCULATION
- The science bit. Ncwnham, David // Nursing Standard;4/6/2005, Vol. 19 Issue 30, p32
Examines the dynamics on capillary action and on how capillaries absorb nutrients in the body. Comparison of the capillary action with the significance of spilled milk or the rise of water in a glass tube; Contention of the author that surface tension enables water to rise up in a glass tube;...
- Early Microvascular Dysfunction in Healthy Normal-Weight Males With Heredity for Type 2 Diabetes. Jörneskog, Gun; Kalan, Majid; Kuhl, Jeanette; Båvenholm, Peter; Katz, Abram; Allerstrand, Gustaf; Alvarsson, Michael; Efendic, Suad; Stenson, Claes-Göran; Pernow, John; Wahren, John; Brismar, Kerstin // Diabetes Care;Jun2005, Vol. 28 Issue 6, p1495
Presents a study which investigated whether genetic factors are associated with disturbances in nutritive skin capillary circulation, non-nutritive skin microcirculation and bracial macrocirculation. Research design and methods; Results; Conclusions.
- THE NATURE OF THE CAPILLARY DAMAGING FACTOR IN FOREIGN PLASMA. Lake, B. J.; Simmonds, W. J.; Steinbeck, A. W. // Australian Journal of Experimental Biology & Medical Science;Feb1953, Vol. 31 Issue 1, p65
The nature of the factor responsible for the foreign plasma effect, an increase of capillary permeability occurring on injection into unsensitized animals, has been investigated. The factor was shown to he a protein or bound to plasma protein, since human C.S.F. and ultrafiltrates of human...
- BLOOD FLOW IN THE MICROCIRCULATION OF THE CONJUNCTIVAL VESSELS OF MAN. Wells, Roe; Edgerton, Harold // Angiology;Nov1967, Vol. 18 Issue 11, p699
Cinephotography of the bulbar conjunctival vessels was carried out by means of a 16-mm reflex cine camera utilizing synchronized strobe light, mounted on the focusing stand of an ophthalmic head rest. Details of the microcirculation including capillary flow could be ascertained from the...
- Influence of systemically applied angiotensin II on the microcirculation of glomerular capillaries in the rat. Zimmerhackl, Bernd; Parekh, Niranjan; Kücherer, Helmut; Steinhausen, Michael // Kidney International;Jan1985, Vol. 27 Issue 1, p17
The effect of intravenous infusion of angiotensin II on microvascular parameters of the renal microcirculation of rats was studied. With the aid of fluorescence microscopy and a high sensitivity video system we observed the passage of fluorescence-labeled erythrocytes through single glomerular...
- A NEW TECHNIQUE FOR VITAL MICROSCOPIC STUDIES OF THE CAPILLARY BED IN RAT SKIN. Marckmann, A. // Angiology;Jul1966, Vol. 17 Issue 7, p469
Using TV as an amplifier, an atraumatic method of observation of the capillary bed and microcirculation in rat skin at magnifications of 340 Ã— and 1000 Ã— has been developed. The advantages of the method are emphasized.
- Ultrastructure of the Human Dermal Microcirculation. III. The Vessels in the Mid- and Lower Dermis and Subcutaneous Fat. Braverman, Irwin M.; Keh-Yen, Agnes // Journal of Investigative Dermatology;Sep81, Vol. 77 Issue 3, p297
This paper describes the ultrastructure of the microcirculatory vessels in the mid- and lower dermis and subcutaneous fat. Reconstruction of vessel walls, tracing out the courses of individual vessels, and survey examination of vessels were carried out by various combinations of routine and...
- Doppler Spectroscopy of Blood In Vivo under the Action of Low-Intensity Laser Radiation. Korolevich, A. N.; Astaf'eva, L. G.; Dubina, N. S.; Vecherinski&icaron;, S. I.; Belsley, M. S. // Optics & Spectroscopy;Mar2004, Vol. 96 Issue 3, p458
The rate of microcirculation of blood in human skin is studied in vivo in the normal state and in the presence of cardiovascular diseases. It is shown experimentally that low-intensity laser radiation affects the rheological characteristics of erythrocytes. To explain the results obtained, a...
- metarteriole. // Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary (2009);2009, Issue 21, p1455
A definition of the term "metarteriole," which refers to a small vessel connecting an arteriole to a venule from which true capillaries are given off, is presented.
