ABSTRACT
Biomicroscopy of the bulbar conjunctival, lip, and nailfold small vessels was done in patients who were given unilateral cervico-thoracic sympathetic block. The changes observed appeared simultaneously on the blocked and contralateral side. They consisted of marked dilatation of the venules, appearance of new capillaries, improved blood flow, a decrease of sludge and spasm, and decrease or disappearance of vasomotion. The changes were less marked on the contralateral side. The changes observed paralleled the clinical signs of block. Vaso-motion, however, was equally decreased on both sides and for a shorter duration than the other changes. Several explanations are discussed.

    Abstract: Objective: Milrinone has been known to dilate the internal thoracic artery (ITA) and the radial artery (RA). The effect of milrinone, however, on each graft is unclear when the left ITA (LITA) and the RA form a Y-graft. This study evaluated the changes in blood flow of a composite...

    The blood supply of veins, as shown by this study on dog and human veins, consists of a rich network of two types of larger vasa vasorum running longitudinally, often in groups of two or three. Smaller vessels penetrate the media, almost to the intima (Fig. 9). It is possible that vasa vasorum...

    Spatial distributions of particles carried by blood exhibit complex filamentary pattern under the combined effects of geometrical irregularities of the blood vessels and pulsating pumping by the heart. This signifies the existence of so called chaotic advection. In the present article, we argue...
